Versionberg

Gradle plugin for versioning your library/application on every git commit.

(Generated by Breaking Bad Generator)

Usage

You can use the new plugin syntax for gradle 2.1+:

plugins {
  id "io.github.rockerhieu.versionberg" version "<latest-version>"
}

Or the legacy way:

buildscript {
   repositories {
       maven { url "https://plugins.gradle.org/m2/" } // or jcenter()
   }
   dependencies {
       classpath 'io.github.rockerhieu:versionberg:<latest-version>'
   }
}

apply plugin: 'io.github.rockerhieu.versionberg'

Gradle tasks

versionbergInfo: print version info into the console, e.g:

$ ./gradlew versionbergInfo
$ Versionberg: 
          major: 1
          minor: 0
          patch: 10
          build: 25
          commitSha: d48434f
          commitCount: 25
          code: 1000000025
          name: 1.0.d48434f-SNAPSHOT
          gitDir: null

Java

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven { url "https://plugins.gradle.org/m2/" } // or jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'io.github.rockerhieu:versionberg:<latest-version>'
    }
}

apply plugin: 'io.github.rockerhieu.versionberg'
apply plugin: 'java'

versionberg {
    major 1
    minor 0
    patch 0
}

version = versionberg.name

Android

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven { url "https://plugins.gradle.org/m2/" } // or jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'io.github.rockerhieu:versionberg:<latest-version>'
    }
}

apply plugin: 'io.github.rockerhieu.versionberg'
apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

versionberg {
    major 1
    minor 0
    patch 0
}

android {
    defaultConfig {
        versionCode versionberg.code
        versionName versionberg.name
    }
}

Advanced usage

Custom git repo

By default the plugin will try to find the git repo in the root project directory. But you can change it to any git repo that you want by setting gitDir:

versionberg {
    major 1
    minor 0
    gitDir new File("path/to/git/repo/.git")
}

Template

You can define template for version name and version code if you don't want to use the default settings provided by Versionberg

versionberg {
    // Increase when you make incompatible API changes (default value is 0)
    major 1

    // Increase when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner (default value is 0)
    minor 0

    // Increase when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes (default value is 0)
    patch 0

    // default is ${commitCount}, uncomment to use a custom build number
    // build 2

    // Default version name template is '${major}.${minor}.${patch}.${build}'
    nameTemplate '${major}.${minor}.${new Date().format("ddMMyyyy")}-SNAPSHOT'
    
    // Default version code template is '${build}'
    codeTemplate '(((${major} * 100) + ${minor}) * 100) * 100000 + ${build}'
}

You can put date into the template, i.e ${new Date().format("ddMMyyyy")}, see more at SimpleDateFormat.

See Advanced Usage for the list of all available variables can be used in nameTemplate and codeTemplate.

My config

This is the config that I been using for some years:

versionberg {
    major 1
    minor 0
    nameTemplate '${major}.${minor}.${commitCount}.${commitSha}'
    codeTemplate '(((${major} * 100) + ${minor}) * 100) * 100000 + ${build}'
}

Example value:

major: 1
minor: 0
patch: 0
build: 12
commitSha: 9a35eb9
commitCount: 12
code: 1000000012
name: 1.0.12.9a35eb9

Main advantages:

  • ${commitCount}: easy to reference to a version when communicating
  • ${commitSha}: easy to identify the git revision of a given build
