NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git::NextRelease - Use time-stamp from Git instead of process start time.

VERSION

version 0.004000

SYNOPSIS

This module acts as a moderately thin wrapper to [NextRelease] so that the time-stamps produced are generated by asking git for the time-stamp of the current branch.

If you always require a specific branch for generating time-stamps, it can be specified as a parameter.

    -[NextRelease]
    +[Git::NextRelease]

Optionally:

    +branch = master

Or:

    +default_branch = master

( The latter only having impact in detached-head conditions )

This exists mostly because of my extensive use of [Git::CommitBuild], to provide a commit series for both releases, and builds of all changes/commits in order to push them to Travis for testing. ( Mostly, because testing a build branch is substantially faster than testing a master that requires Dist::Zilla, especially if you're doing "Fresh install" testing like I am. )

METHODS

section_header

This is the sole method of [NextRelease] that we override, in order for it to inject the right things.

This method basically returns the date string to append to the Changes header.

ATTRIBUTES

branch

If set, always use the specified branch to determine time-stamp.

Default value is resolved from determining "current" branch.

default_branch

If you want being on a branch to always resolve to that branch, but you still want a useful behavior when on a detached head, specifying this value means that on a detached head, the stated branch will be used instead.

FORMATS

[Git::NextRelease] enhances and adds a few features of [NextRelease]

  • %d - A CLDR formatter of the branch's HEAD timestamp. ( Original uses simply now )

  • %H - The SHA1 of branch's HEAD

  • %h - The SHA1 of branch's HEAD shortened to 7 characters.
