I went through a tutorial and I had to run

catkin_generate_changelog


and I interfaced this ERROR :

ERROR: Could not detect repository type - currently supports: git, hg


I searched this problem on the web , but nothing special found .
I'm Using ROS kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Thanks in advance.

what is the repository type that you are using?

I got that, @Ali GH, but before doing that, your current code, as it is should be in a repository. Normally this is a git repo, that you have created and checked out from github. Or you created the code from scratch without version control?

@Procópio I created the code from scratch without version control and the folder of my workspace and packages are on my computer , Actually I'm new to version control .

@Ali GH, I suggest you familiarise yourself with version control before trying to create a release. Maybe you are just mixing things up and what you want is to create a github project of your code?

@Procópio Yes I want to create a github project of my code that can be updated with bloom command

@Ali GH forget about releases and bloom. First master the version control and later try to understand how to do a release.
