Bump is a gem that will simplify the way you build gems and chef-cookbooks.


gem install bump

bump current

Current version: 0.1.2

Bump (major, minor, patch, pre):

bump patch

Bump version 0.1.2 to 0.1.3



If you don't want to make a commit after bumping, add the --no-commit option.

bump patch --no-commit


Will add a git tag (if the current project is a git repository and --no-commit has not been given).

bump patch --tag


If you don't want to run the bundle command after bumping, add the --no-bundle option.

bump patch --no-bundle

--commit-message [MSG], -m [MSG]

If you want to append additional information to the commit message, pass it in using the --commit-message [MSG] or -m [MSG] option.

bump patch --commit-message [no-ci]


bump patch -m [no-cli]


# Rakefile
require "bump/tasks"

# if you want to always tag the verison, add:
# Bump.tag_by_default = true
rake bump:patch
rake bump:current


require "bump"
Bump::Bump.current        # -> "1.2.3"
Bump::Bump.run("patch")   # -> version changed
Bump::Bump.run("patch", commit: false, bundle:false, tag:false) # -> version changed with options
Bump::Bump.run("patch", commit_message: '[no ci]') # -> creates a commit message with 'v1.2.3 [no ci]' instead of default: 'v1.2.3'
