Tool for version tag update
[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/simontorres/simple-version-manager.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/simontorres/simple-version-manager) [![Coverage Status](https://coveralls.io/repos/github/simontorres/simple-version-manager/badge.svg?branch=master)](https://coveralls.io/github/simontorres/simple-version-manager?branch=master) # Simplify version management
The idea behind the development of this small tool is to simplify the process of increasing your version number. It is designed to work with a specific format explained below.
## Version format supported
There are countless ways of handling your versions and there is no _right_ or _wrong_ way. The format I choose is the following:
` major.minor.patch.devN `
Some examples in no particular order
` 0.0.1 1.1.1.dev1 30.1.1.dev5 `
## Usage Please note that this will depend on the size of your team and complexity of the project. Either way if the team is large there will be a manager that should control when the version is updated so in principle is the same for a large or even a one-person team. Here are some examples:
- You should use this program with –dev argument right after you pulled the latest changes from upstream
- You can use –patch, –minor or –major in combination with –release when you want to create a new release.
- Also you have the freedom of updating any of the fields independently
## Options The argument options are better explained with examples. Let’s say we currently are working on version 1.2.3.dev4
- --dev will increase the development version by one leaving you with 1.2.3.dev5
- --patch will give you 1.2.4.dev1 notice that the development version is dropped back to one
- --minor will change the version to 1.3.0.dev1 notice now that not only _dev_ is dropped to one but also the patch count drops to zero.
- --major will change version to 2.0.0.dev1 which is the same as –minor plus dropping _minor_ to zero.
- --release will remove the devN part leaving you with 1.2.3. –release can be used in combination of other options.
- --set Let you set the version to any value.
If you start from a _stable_ version like 2.0.0 you should use the –dev argument that will increase the patch number and add the _dev1_ string. 2.0.1.dev1
