NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::AutoVersion - take care of numbering versions so you don't have to

VERSION

version 6.020

DESCRIPTION

This plugin automatically produces a version string, generally based on the current time. By default, it will be in the format: 1.yyDDDn

PERL VERSION SUPPORT

This module has the same support period as perl itself: it supports the two most recent versions of perl. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

ATTRIBUTES

major

The major attribute is just an integer that is meant to store the major version number. If no value is specified in configuration, it will default to 1.

This attribute's value can be referred to in the autoversion format template.

format

The format is a Text::Template string that will be rendered to form the version. It is meant to access to one variable, $major, and one subroutine, cldr, which will format the current time (in GMT) using CLDR patterns (for which consult the DateTime documentation).

The default value is:

  {{ $major }}.{{ cldr('yyDDD') }}
  {{ sprintf('%01u', ($ENV{N} || 0)) }}
  {{$ENV{DEV} ? (sprintf '_%03u', $ENV{DEV}) : ''}}
