re: Automate semantic versioning in git VIEW POST


Hey there, it actually got my attention and it looks interesting. I readed readme and code itself. I have few quick suggestions to improve.

  • simple instalation (see my )
  • allow empty message
  • add push param (something like —push, -p) to push without asking and what about do not asking if push?
  • when wanting confirmation of new tag, just proceed when enter is pressed or take “y” as default option. take “n” for no ( or ctrl+c can be used)
  • allow bypass confirmation by param —yes or -y
  • i will try to treat it as regular linux utility, so using —params will be nice.

Thank you for the suggestions, Patrik,

The over-confirmation issue ;-) comes from the fact that currently I cannot be certain about what kind/format of tag the tool will retrieve from git describe, so I decided to ask before proceed. I think improving the tag detection from the beginning will help.

The idea of a --push or --force option is something I was starting to think about.

Well, this is a pet project of mine to learn something about shell scripting and git, so all suggestions are more than welcome. :-)


I personally love git and bash, and making tool for that is something, what i highly support. I think, once it is done, it will be nice package to have. I think, when you are your own user, project is good to go.

If you will be interested, it will be nice to "exchange" improve our bash-git repos. :)
If you want, please look at my, send PR, open issue, whatever. :)

Happy bashing! :)
