Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git::Tag - Tag the new version
In your dist.ini:
[Git::Tag] tag_format = v%v ; this is the default tag_message = v%v ; this is the default
Once the release is done, this plugin will record this fact in git by creating a tag. By default, it makes an annotated tag. You can set the
tag_message attribute to change the message. If you set
tag_message to the empty string, it makes a lightweight tag.
It also checks before the release to ensure the tag to be created doesn't already exist. (You would have to manually delete the existing tag before you could release the same version again, but that is almost never a good idea.)
The plugin accepts the following options:
tag_format - format of the tag to apply. Defaults to
tag_message - format of the tag annotation. Defaults to
tag_message =to create a lightweight tag. The formatting codes used in
tag_messageare documented under Dist::Zilla::Role::Git::StringFormatter.
time_zone - the time zone to use with
%d. Can be any time zone name accepted by DateTime. Defaults to
branch - which branch to tag. Defaults to the current branch.
signed - whether to make a GPG-signed tag, using the default e-mail address's key. Consider setting
gpgcan't find the correct key:
$ git config user.signingkey 450F89EC
my $tag = $plugin->tag;
Return the tag that will be / has been applied by the plugin. That is, returns
tag_format as completed with the real values.
