[ANN] Commit Log 1.0 released

Commit Log 1.0 available via the Plugin Manager (IDEA v7.0.1+ only)

Creates a commit log for each commit executed, according to a user
defined template.

This is mainly aimed at those of us who have a non-vcs integrated issue
tracking system (e.g. bugzilla) and who want to record exact details of
associated commits within their issue updates.
However, at present the plugin generates a simple textual log, based on
a user-defined template, so this can be used for any purpose required,
such as emailing or placing into documents.
Ultimately it is intended to implement automated actions to be performed
post commit, e.g. for integration with issue trackers, or emailing of logs.

Settings can be edited on a per-project basis in Project Settings|Commit
Log.

This is an initial basic cut to get it out and tested. Further
refinement and features are planned. Any ideas, comments or bug reports
welcome. You can file issues online at
http://code.google.com/p/ideacommitlogplugin/issues/entry

To Do:

  • Allow automated actions to be defined for execution using the

generated commit log.

  • Improve template editing.

  • Pre-commit log generation, and generation of commit comment.

I love the concept of this plugin! However, I must be missing something. Where do I go to look at the log entries?

Thanks!

Hi Todd,

If you've checked the 'Generate Commit Log' checkbox on the commit
dialog, after your commit has fully completed you should have a new
toolwindow "Commit Logs" appear at the bottom of your screen containing
the generated commit log.

If you've got everything installed properly and turned on and you're
still not seeing anything I can look into it some more - please let me
know which vcs you're working with.

Thanks for trying it out!

Cheers,
N.
