Codegeist Unleashed 2023: Why You Need the AI Release Notes App in Your Team

The Codegeist Unleashed 2023 has just ended! This year we created three apps, and today I’m here to tell you more about one of them: AI Release Notes app. How it works, how it came to be, and what we learned in the process? Read along to find out.


πŸ™Œ What inspired us

During everyday work there are tasks that are quite tedious but also very important. Sometimes we forget about them because of a constant flurry of new things to get done. One of such tasks is creating release notes for new versions of apps. Would you like to create them in a short time and with low effort? This is where the AI Release Notes application presented by our team comes to the rescue!

βœ… Key features

  • Possibility to choose versions and issues that contain the most important information.
  • No need to manually search for information in issues and versions, AI does it for you.
  • Possibility to choose what details should appear in release notes.
  • Different text styles depending on the document's recipient.
  • Ability to choose the type of text formatting (html, markdown, etc.).

πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“ What we learned

Above all, we’ve learned that a common goal strengthens relationships in a team, even one formed a few days before work begins. Before Codegeist, we didn't know each other, but that didn't stop us from developing high-level communication. On the development side, we learned how to use AI in business applications and how to use webtriggers in Forge.

βš™οΈ How we built our project

Our project was built on the Forge platform, extended with atlaskit components with customUI views. We used the OpenAI API as a connection to AI. While working on the components for the views, we used the storybook. In parallel, the work of optimizing the corresponding prompt for AI was going on.

πŸ’ͺ The challenges we faced

It will come as no surprise that our biggest challenge was time. How to create a helpful and functional application with a deadline looming? Of course, the most important factor was the commitment of our team, which worked tirelessly for many hours in close cooperation. Apart from that, it was a mystery to us how to connect with AI and use this connection effectively (spoiler: we did it).

If you spend hours creating release notes, rummaging through a multitude of Jira issues, the AI Release Notes app might be just what you need. If you want to learn more about it, check out our Codegeist Submission and watch the video below:
