gitstats - git history statistics generator
gitstats [options] <repository dir> <output dir>
gitstats is a statistics generator for git(1) repositories. It examines the repository and produces some interesting statistics from the history of it. Currently HTML is the only output format.
-c option=value Override a default configuration value. Defaults can be seen by running gitstats without parameters. Values: authors_top How many top authors to show. commit_begin, commit_end Specify a commit range to generate statistics from. You can specify only commit_end limit statistics to a certain commit or another branch. linear_linestats When enabled, the lines of code statistics are collected from linear history. The downside is that commits of long feature branches appear only at the point where a merge commit is made. If disabled (old behaviour), the problem is that if two branches contain the same changes (for example, removal of same lines), the statistics get skewed. Defaults to on. max_authors How many authors to show in the list of authors. max_domains How many domains to show in domains by commits. max_ext_length Maximum file extension length. processes Number of concurrent processes to use when extracting git repository data. project_name Project name to show on the generated pages. Default is to use basename of the repository directory. start_date Specify a starting date to pass with --since to git. style CSS stylesheet to use.
Q: How do I generate statistics of a non-master branch? A: Use "-c commit_end=web" parameter. Q: I have files in my git repository that I would like to exclude from the statistics, how do I do that? A: At the moment the only way is to use git-filter-branch(1) to create a temporary repository and generate the statistics from that. Q: How do I merge author information when the same author has made commits using different names or emails ? A: Use git .mailmap feature described in MAPPING AUTHORS of git-shortlog(1).
Generates statistics from a git repository in "foo" and outputs the result in a directory "foo_stats": gitstats foo foo_stats As above, but only analyzes the last 10 commits: gitstats -c commit_begin='HEAD~10' foo foo_stats
