hgdistver ~~~~~~~~~ This module is a simple drop-in to support setup.py in mercurial based projects. Alternatively it can be a setup time requirement. Its supposed to generate version numbers from mercurials meta-data. It tries to use the current tag and falls back to the next reachable tagged ancestor and using the distance to it as .post marker. It uses 4 strategies to archive its task: 1. try to directly ask hg for the tag/distance 2. try to infer it from the `.hg_archival.txt` file 3. try to use the cache file if it exists 4. try to read the version from the 'PKG-INFO' file sdists contain (this is a nasty abuse) The most simple usage is:: from setuptools import setup from hgdistver import get_version setup( ..., version=get_version(), ..., ) `get_version` takes the optional argument `cachefile`, which causes it to store the version info in a python script instead of abusing PKG-INFO from a sdist. The setup requirement usage is:: from setuptools import setup setup( ..., get_version_from_hg=True, setup_requires=['hgdistver'], ..., ) The requirement uses the setup argument cache_hg_version_to instead of cachefile.
