This extension helps you creating consistent changelogs. With many customization options you can look at the changelog however you want. Feel free to customize the icons and colors or try out flatten the tree structure or even change the date format.
The extension checks all folders in of your workspaces if a CHANGELOG.md (case-insensitive) file exists (include/exclude regexes are customizable). They are listet in the tree view by the name of folders where they are found.
When hovering over the tree items you get the options to add or edit items. Items can be deleted over the context menu.
Whenever you add or change an item, the corresponding changelog file will be updated immediately. The file is formatted according to the convention from keepachangelog.com.
By default, there is an attribution to this extension right below the title. There are configuration options to turn it into a markdown comment, change its position in the file or completely remove it. Please notice that my aim is to make changelogs on the internet more consistent and not to bother you with advertising my extension. 😊
If you have any ideas how this extension could be improved, feel free to open an issue or get in touch with me.
