Leiningen plugin to provide a non-signing variant of vcs tag



DEPRECATION NOTICE: This plugin is deprecated since the release of Leiningen 2.5.3 which added this option to the vcs tag task.


A Leiningen plugin to provide a non-signing alternative to vcs tag task.

Leiningen's default vcs tag task uses git tag -s to create a signed tag. That's cool for many projects, but some others do not need or want to sign their tags. There are a couple of reported issues on leiningen asking about this, but no one took the step to fix it yet and there is a PR to address them, so this library will be deprecated as soon as that change lands in a new leiningen release.

This plugin is an easy way (ugly hack?) to have this working now, and also a great exercise for me to create a leiningen plugin :)


Put [lein-tag-no-sign "0.1.0"] into the :plugins vector of your project.clj.

The behavior of the tag-no-sign task mimics the vcs tag task, except that it doesn't try to sign the tag.

You can call it from the command line

$ lein tag-no-sign

Or most probably you could use it as part of your customized release-tasks in your project.clj:

  :release-tasks [["vcs" "assert-committed"]
                  ["change" "version"
                   "leiningen.release/bump-version" "release"]
                  ["vcs" "commit"]

See the leiningen doc about Overriding the default :release-tasks for more info.
