Python Version Bumper

Build Code Coverage Version License Python Version

Simple python code to bump kubernetes package manager Helm charts.yaml, VERSION and files versions.

Version is allowed a lower case 'v' character for example: v1.5.4-beta2


pip install pybump


bump version:
pybump bump [-h] --file PATH_TO_CHART.YAML --level {major,minor,patch} [--quiet]

set explicit version or set auto release+metadata:
pybump set --file PATH_TO_CHART.YAML --set-version X.Y.Z [--quiet]

the auto flag is mainly intended for pull request CIs, by using:
pybump set --file PATH_TO_CHART.YAML --auto [--quiet]
pybump will add git commit hash as release info to version
  • NOTE - This can be dangerous as the auto flag might detect a git repo you were not intended to bump, make sure the bumped file is really a child in the git repo you intended to bump.
get current version:
pybump get --file PATH_TO_CHART.YAML

update Helm chart appVersion:
in order to bump/get/set the Helm chart appVersion value just add the --app-version flag
pybump bump [-h] --file PATH_TO_CHART.YAML --level {major,minor,patch} [--quiet] [--app-version]
  • note that the --app-version flag is relevant only for Helm chart.yaml files and has not effect on other cases.
