Automatically set package version using git tags.

Project description


PackageVersion PythonVersion Stable Format License

Automatically set package version from Git. This is a re-release of very-good-setuptools-git-version with fixes and improvements, which is itself a re-release of setuptools-git-version


Instead of hard-coding the package version in like:


this package allows to extract it from tags in the underlying Git repository:

        "version_format": "{tag}.dev{sha}",
        "starting_version": "0.1.0"

The tool uses the semantically-latest tag as the base version. If there are no annotated tags, the version specified by starting_version will be used. If HEAD is at the tag, the version will be the tag itself. If there are commits ahead of the tag, the first 8 characters of the sha of the HEAD commit will be included.

In all of the above cases, if the working tree is also dirty or contains untracked files, a +dirty suffix will be appended to the version.
