How To Get The Latest Tag On Git
Tags on Git are usually used to mark versions, specific points in the project’s timeline that represents a release.
Very often we need to check which was the latest or biggest version number tagged,
using only git tag command it can become really
tricky after a while because it returns all the tags created in numerical order.
But you can easily retrieve the latest added tag by issuing.
But if for some weird reason someone created a tag out of order you will not get the biggest version number on the tag list.
In this case, we can achieve this using the external command sort and
git tag | sort --version-sort | tail -n1
