versionah 0.16.0

Simple version specification management


versionah is a simple tool to help you — or more specifically me — easily maintain version information for a project. Its entire aim is to make the act of displaying or bumping a project’s version number a thoughtless task.

It is written in Python, and released under the GPL v3.


versionah should run on Python v3.5 or newer. The only external libraries versionah depends on are click, jinja and jnrbase. If versionah doesn’t work with the version of Python you have installed, file an issue and I’ll endeavour to fix it.


The simplest way to show how versionah works is by example:

$ versionah set example.txt 2.4.3
$ versionah display example.txt
$ versionah bump example.txt minor
$ versionah bump example.txt major

API Stability

API stability isn’t guaranteed across versions, although frivolous changes won’t be made.

When versionah 1.0.0 is released the API will be frozen, and any changes which aren’t backwards compatible will force a major version bump.
