semvermamager implements a restricted subset of the SEMVER standard

Project description


semvermamager exports a single class Version which implements a restricted subset of the SEMVER standard.

Version defines a Semantic version using the following field structure:


    int MAJOR  # 0->N
    int MINOR  # 0->N
    int PATCH  # 0-N
    str TAG    # one of "alpha", "beta". 
    int TAG_VERSION # a version number appended to alpha or beta. 

Versions may be bumped by a single increment using any of the bump functions. Bumping a PATCH value simply increments it. Bumping a MINOR value zeros the PATCH value and bumping a MAJOR zeros the MINOR and the PATCH value.

semvermanager only supports Python 3.6 and greater.
