Python linting badge Python testing badge Codecov badge

A changelog generator used by ansible-core and Ansible collections.

antsibull-changelog is covered by the Ansible Code of Conduct.


It can be installed with pip:

pip install antsibull-changelog

For more information, see the documentation.

Using directly from git clone

Scripts are created by poetry at build time. So if you want to run from a checkout, you'll have to run them under poetry:

python3 -m pip install poetry
poetry install  # Installs dependencies into a virtualenv
poetry run antsibull-changelog --help

If you want to create a new release:

poetry build
poetry publish  # Uploads to pypi.  Be sure you really want to do this

Note: When installing a package published by poetry, it is best to use pip >= 19.0. Installing with pip-18.1 and below could create scripts which use pkg_resources which can slow down startup time (in some environments by quite a large amount).

If you prefer to work with pip install -e, you can use dephell to create a file from pyproject.toml:

dephell deps convert --from-path pyproject.toml --from-format poetry --to-path --to-format setuppy

Then you can install antsibull-changelog with pip install -e ..

Build a release

First update the version entry in pyproject.toml. Then generate the changelog:

antsibull-changelog release

Then build the build artefact:

poetry build

Finally, publish to PyPi:

poetry publish

Then tag the current state with the release version and push the tag to the repository.
