Version Manager

This manager updates version information for your project. It allows for either semantic versioning or calendar versioning. It will also generate changelogs based on commits since the last version released.

Edit version information in sources and open a pull request with tagged commit.

This manager can simplify package releases for you. If you open an issue that requests new version release, this manager will do actions needed on source code level.

Caution

This manager does NOT create new releases. It only creates the changes in source code and changelogs. Additional CI must be added.

A requirement to make this manager operational is that your version should be stated as a string in your setup.py, version.py, __about__.py, __init__.py, app.py or wsgi.py file in a variable named __version__.

Optionally, Changelogs using Machine Learning and NLP can be generated through Glyph

Prerequisites

  1. You need one of the following files: setup.py, version.py, __about.py, __init__.py, app.py or wsgi.py to contain the following line:

    __version__="<current-version-string>"
