Add a `__version__` attribute to tg

Reported by: pitrou Owned by: mramm
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.0b6
Component: TurboGears Version: trunk
Severity: trivial Keywords:


It is common practice to define a __version__ attribute in packaged or modules, but turbogears doesn't:

>>> import tg
>>> tg.__file__
>>> tg.__version__
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '__version__'

only if version grabs the version from the egg info...

This is a code snippet I personally use:

__versioninfo__ = (0, 1, 7)

base_version = '.'.join(map(str, __versioninfo__))
full_version = base_version
    import pkg_resources
except ImportError:
        full_version = pkg_resources.get_distribution("hgsvn").version
    except pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound:

__version__ = full_version

(replace "hgsvn" with "TurboGears2" or something. The ImportError? dance allows the code to work even without an explicit install. You can yank it if you don't support this scenario)

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

We're keeping version info in tg.release.version, but I've aliased that to tg.version now.
