## Overview

Manages the release of a python library.

* auto generates a changelog entry (using github's compare view and commit urls)
* cli that follows [semantic versioning][0] principles to auto-increment the library version
* runs the library tests
* test package installation from a tarball and pypi
* uploads to pypi
* tags the github repo

## Usage

An application wanting to use `changes` must meet these requirements:

* on [github](https://github.com)
* `setup.py`
* `requirements.txt`
* `CHANGELOG.md`
* `<app_name>/__init__.py` with `__version__` and `__url__`
* supports executing tests with [`nosetests`][2] or [`tox`][3]
* we expect `<app_name>` to be the package and module name

Install `changes`:

pip install changes

Run the cli:

```
changes.

Usage:
changes [options] <module_name> changelog
changes [options] <module_name> release
changes [options] <module_name> bump_version
changes [options] <module_name> run_tests
changes [options] <module_name> install
changes [options] <module_name> upload
changes [options] <module_name> pypi
changes [options] <module_name> tag

changes -h | --help

Options:
--new-version=<ver> Specify version.
-p --patch Patch-level version increment.
-m --minor Minor-level version increment.
-M --major Minor-level version increment.

-h --help Show this screen.

--pypi=<pypi> Use alternative package index
--dry-run Prints the commands that would have been executed.
--skip-changelog For the release task: should the changelog be
generated and committed?
--tox Use `tox` instead of the default: `nosetests`
--test-command=<cmd> Command to use to test the newly installed package
--version-prefix=<prefix> Specify a prefix for version number tags
--noinput To be used in conjuction with one of the version
increment options above, this option stops
`changes` from confirming the new version number.
--module-name=<module> If your module and package aren't the same
--requirements=<reqfile> Requirements file name (defaults to requirements.txt)
--debug Debug output.

The commands do the following:
changelog Generates an automatic changelog from your commit messages
bump_version Increments the __version__ attribute of your module's __init__
run_tests Runs your tests with nosetests
install Attempts to install the sdist
tag Tags your git repo with the new version number
upload Uploads your project with setup.py clean sdist bdist_wheel upload
pypi Attempts to install your package from pypi
release Runs all the previous commands
```

The default workflow is to run the `changelog` command to autogenerate
a changelog entry based on your commit messages.

You're probably going to want to edit that a bit, so `changes` won't commit it,
unless you're running the `release` command.

The remaining tasks can be automated with the `release` command (the
`--skip-changelog` option prevents `release` from regenerating the automatic changelog)

```python
(changes)$ changes -p changes changelog
What is the release version for "changes" [Default: 0.1.1]:
INFO:changes.cli:Added content to CHANGELOG.md
Everything up-to-date
INFO:changes.cli:Committed changelog update
