Digest Diff is an AI-driven tool that makes use of commit history to provide codebase overviews, generate standup updates, and create detailed release notes without accessing the code itself. It helps developers tell the story behind the commit log, get insights into the authors' contributions, and trace the evolutionary journey of the code over time. With Digest Diff, teams can accelerate their onboarding process by quickly getting up to speed with a codebase, save time by automatically summarizing their work for standups, retrospectives, and reports, and easily create informative release notes without the need to access the actual code. The tool prioritizes privacy and security by requesting only read-only access to GitHub repositories and never storing any generated release notes or codebase overviews.
