A way to manage your versioning and changelogs with a focus on multi-package repositories
changesetsworkflow is designed to help from when people are making changes, all the way through to publishing. It lets contributors declare how their changes should be released, then we automate updating package versions, and changelogs, and publishing new versions of packages based on the provided information.
Changesets has a focus on solving these problems for multi-package repositories, and keeps packages that rely on each other within the multi-package repository up-to-date, as well as making it easy to make changes to groups of packages.
changesetis an intent to release a set of packages at particular semver bump types with a summary of the changes made.
The @changesets/cli package allows you to write
changesetfiles as you make changes, then combine any number of changesets into a release, that flattens the bump-types into a single release per package, handles internal dependencies in a multi-package-repository, and updates changelogs, as well as release all updated packages from a mono-repository with one command.
If you just want to jump in to using changesets, the @changesets/cli docs are where you should head.
If you want a detailed explanation of the the concepts behind changesets, or to understand how you would build on top of changesets, check out our detailed-explanation.
We also have a dictionary.
While changesets can be an entirely manual process, we recommend integrating it with how your CI works.
To check that PRs contain a changeset, we recommend using the changeset bot, or if you want to fail builds on a changesets failure, run
yarn changeset statusin CI.
To make releasing easier, you can use this changesets github action to automate creating versioning pull requests, and optionally publishing packages.
