Notes for using rever

Rever is a very powerful versioning and release tool. Like all good tools there are use patterns to maximizing your productivity.

  1. Always commit all changes before versioning/tagging the code, since rever will commit any changes. While rever can undo the changes it makes all non-version changes will be lost upon a rever undo!

  2. You can undo a rever command by rever $version -u command1,command2

  3. You will need to insert a __version__=='a.b.c' in the top most file.

  4. You will need to change the docs to use the version by importing it from the top most file.

# The short X.Y version.
version = REVER_VERSION.rsplit('.',1)[0]

# The full version, including alpha/beta/rc tags.
