Simple Git version plugin for setuptools

Project description

Simple Git version plugin for setuptools.


Modify the of your project and add setuptools-gitver to setup_requires and add keyword argument gitver=True. Then, after each release, add .post+gitver suffix to the version string.

For example, in

import setuptools

if __name__ == '__main__':

This will then generate version numbers like 1.2.3.post0.dev7+ga1b2c3d where 7 is the number of commits since the v1.2.3 tag and a1b2c3d is commit id of the HEAD.

When creating a release, update the version and remove the post+gitver suffix. When there is no +gitver suffix, the version won’t be touched by Setuptools Gitver. Also remember to tag the release in Git with git tag -a v1.2.3.
