setuptools-version-command 1.0

Adds a command to dynamically get the version from the VCS of choice

Latest Version: 2.2

setuptools-version-command – get version from VCS

Instead of hardcoding the version in like this:

name=’some-dist-name’, version=‘1.0’, …)

This package allows specifying a VCS command like this:

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 is being run from a 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.

To use it, just do this:

pip install setuptools-version-command

With the pip of the global python.
