I need Git command to get/find last tag starting with 'v' to get last versioning commit (I am using tags with v letter at the beginning to tag next application version (example: v0.9.1beta).
Is there any way to do it?
I'm using the following command for this:
git describe --match "v[0-9]*" --abbrev=4 HEAD
It will also modify the version if you did something with the source tree since your last versioned tag.
Please note that this is not a regex but a glob but works for the provided example.
