Adds a command to dynamically get the version from the VCS of choice
Get version from version control instead of hardcoding it into setup.py
Instead of hardcoding the version in setup.py like this:
setup( name='some-dist-name', version='1.0', ...)
This package allows specifying a VCS command like this:
setup( name='some-dist-name', version_command='git describe', ...)
…Which will then update the version into some-dist-name.egg-info/version.txt, so that the version can also be found if setup.py is being run from an sdist or something.
When it can find the version from either some-dist-name.egg-info/version.txt or the output of the version_command, it will update the version key that is normally used for the version, such as what’s used in the sdist filename and so on.
Instead of specifying the version keyword argument, specify the version_command keyword argument. It can either be a str or a tuple. If it’s a str, it’s interpreted as just the command to execute, for example git describe. If it’s a tuple, it must have two or three elements, and have the form (command, pep440_mode[, post_mode]).
Must be "git describe", but could also support other VCS in the future.
|pep440_mode = None:|
Takes output of command as is, so ignores PEP440. pip and setuptools will throw warnings.
|pep440_mode = "pep440-git-local":|
Moves number of commits and hash as local identifier:
|pep440_mode = "pep440-git-dev":|
(Deprecated) Adds rhe number of commits since a git tag as a .dev tag:
This is against PEP440-specification and supported only for backwards compatibility. It may be removed in time.
|pep440_mode = "pep440-git":|
Works with pre-release versions (alpha, beta, rc etc), post-release versions (post, rev, etc) and dev versions.
In other words, a tag can be absent, open (implicitly or explicitly 0), or closed (have a number greater than zero). If the last Git tag is an open dev tag, that’s the one that will be used for the revision number. If the last Git tag is an open post-release tag, then that will be used. If the last Git tag is an open pre-release tag, that will be used. In other cases, a post-release tag will be added.
Template for adding post-release tags. Optional separator (dot, dash or underscore), followed by "post", "rev" or "r", followed by another optional separator. Can also be a single dash. Default is ".post".
Given a git describe output of 1.2a3-4-abcd123:
To use it, just do this:
pip install setuptools-version-command
With the pip of the global python. (Or use --user.)
To test it, run ./setup.py --version.
Within a checkout of this repo:
virtualenv env env/bin/pip install --editable . env/bin/python setup.py --version
Make sure that you change the setup.py so that it actually makes use of setuptools-version-command.
