A simple CLI that will bump semantic versions based on git tags and conventional commits.
go install github.com/srbry/git-semver
note: At present,
git-semver will not actually add the new git tag to
your repository, it will simply output the next version/ rule for you to use
as you wish.
Show the next semantic version
cd <my-git-repo> git-semver
Show the bump rule that will be used
cd <my-git-repo> git-semver --rule
Note: This is particularly powerful when combinded with a tool like poetry which includes its own version bumping tool
cd <my_poetry_repo> poetry version $(git-semver --rule)
git-semver is slightly opinionated but aligs with how conventional commits intend to use semver:
The supported types are taken from: https://github.com/conventional-changelog/commitlint/tree/master/@commitlint/config-conventional
Any commits that are either not conventional, or do not have an associated rule are not treated as releases.
As well as the rules below. Any type (e.g
ci!) that appends a
! is treated as a breaking change and therefore a
MAJOR release. Additionally any commit that contains the string
BREAKING CHANGE is treated as a breaking change and
Please raise an issue if you disagree with any of our release rules, we would like to encourage conversation.
