How to get the latest version number from a list of git tags

Tagged bash, git, version, zsh  Languages bash

This will print the latest version number that a git repository has been tagged with:

$ git tag -l 'v*' | sort -t. -k 1,1n -k 2,2n -k 3,3n -k 4,4n | tail -n 1

Note that some versions of the sort command have a —version-sort switch, and some don’t:

sort: unrecognized option `--version-sort'
Try `sort --help' for more information.

git push fails:

❯ git push
 ! [rejected]        master -> master (fetch first)
error: failed to push some refs to '[email protected]:xxx/yyy.git'
hint: Updates were rejected because the remote contains work that you do
hint: not have locally. This is usually caused by another repository pushing
hint: to the same ref. You may want to first integrate the remote changes
hint: (e.g., 'git pull ...') before pushing again.
hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.

Use pull and rebase to rewind and replay your commit, otherwise you will end up with a “merge commit” in your git history:

❯ git pull --rebase
remote: Enumerating objects: 5, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (5/5), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (1/1), done.
remote: Total 3 (delta 2), reused 3 (delta 2), pack-reused 0
Unpacking objects: 100% (3/3), done.
   aaa..bbb  master     -> origin/master
First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
Applying: <Your commit message>.
