Command Line Synopsis

Usage: git_version [options] packaging-command

The git_version setuptools command updates the package’s version metadata based on repository information. Since the update is only done on the metadata in-memory, this is only really useful in the same execution as a packaging command such as sdist or one of the bdist variants.

-C, --committish

Include the abbreviated version of the most recent committish as the local portion of the version number.

-V FILE, --version-file FILE

Writes the local segment of the version to FILE in addition to setting the in-memory version.
