How to use this module

Import this module

Please include this module into your application using the following code:

import jk_version

Parse a version number

Version numbers can either be specified as lists of integers or as a string. Examples:

  • Version([ 1, 7, 51 ])
  • Version(( 1, 7, 51 ))
  • Version("1.7.51")

Version numbering schema

For compatibility reasons the version number parser is designed to accept the following schema:

[ epoch ":" ] version_data

Where epoch is optional and - if present - must be an integer, and version_data is a regular version string consisting of decimal numbers separated by full stops.

Examples for valid version numbers:

  • 0
  • 0.1
  • 0.1.2
  • 2020.12.24
  • 2:0.1.2

Comparing version numbers

Version numbers can be compared. Example:

v1 = Version("0.1.2")
v2 = Version("0.2.0")
print(v2 > v1)

This will print: True
