Getting started

Basic usage

The command interface is hopefully quite intuitive. The following is a sample session:

$ histofile new "Add support for cake baking"
$ histofile new "Removed support for window cleaning"
$ histofile list
2016-02-10T12:03:00     Add support for cake baking
2016-02-10T12:03:05     Removed support for window cleaning
$ histofile update --output - 0.2.0 NEWS.rst
<fancy new NEWS.rst>
$ histofile update 0.2.0 NEWS.rst
<NEWS.rst is updated in place>

Help on individual subcommands is available via histofile <subcommand> --help or in the Usage document.
