Python has a versioning module that will automatically get its version from your latest
git tag, and put that version in a
Briefly, here are the components
setuptools.py you need to add a line:
Next, once you are happy with your repo, add a new tag. Lets start by listing all the tags
git tag -l
and then add a new tag and comment
git tag -a 1.8 -m 'incrementing for new release'
Note here the
-a adds the tag, and the
-m is a comment.
Finally, you need to push that tag to github:
git push origin 1.8
Finally, you need to create a new version of your code. You can start by checking the proposed version
python setup.py --version
This will show the suggested version. Note that
scm makes some guesses based on the changes since the last tag, and so if you see
.dev1+geed5d83 it means that you have commits since the 1.8 tag release. See “Default versioning scheme” on [the scm help page](https://github.com/pypa/setuptools_scm/#default-versioning-scheme) for more details.
Finally, create a release and upload it to pypi!
