Automatic project versioning for Xcode using git commits & tags #xcode #git
#!/bin/sh
# Versioning.sh
#
# https://gist.github.com/791352 by Marc Hedlund
#
# Found at http://kswizz.com/post/2686511526/git-xcode-versioning and slightly
# modified.
# To install:
# * Copy this script to "Other Sources" or wherever is appropriate in your
# project. Make sure it is executable.
# * Project -> New Target... -> MaccOS X -> Other -> Shell Script Target
# * Name the target "Versioning" or something.
# * Open the Versioning target and click on the "Run Script" build phase
# and select File -> Get Info
# * Leave 'shell' as '/bin/sh' and under 'script' enter:
#
# $SOURCE_ROOT/Other\ Sources/Versioning.sh
#
# * Click on another build target, choose Get Info, and in General add
# the Versioning target as one of the Direct Dependencies.
# * Do the same for any other target where you care about the Git version.
# * Modify the final 'touch' command in the script as needed.
# * Now go to the Info.plist for your executable. Use "GIT_TAG" and
# "GIT_COMMIT" for any field. I use GIT_TAG for "Bundle version" (and make
# sure my tags are always #.#.#), and GIT_COMMIT for
# "Bundle versions string, short." (These are preprocessor defines, not
# shell variables, so don't use "${}" around GIT_TAG or GIT_COMMIT.)
# * In the project’s main build settings, turn on "Preprocess Info.plist"
# and set "Info.plist Preprocessor Prefix File" to
# $PROJECT_TEMP_DIR/revision.prefix.
