Usage

gitBlame(repoPath, options)

Example:

var gitBlame = require('git-blame');
var path = require('path');

var repoPath = path.resolve(process.env.REPO || (__dirname + '/.git'));
var file = process.env.FILE || 'package.json';
var rev = process.env.REV || 'HEAD';

gitBlame(repoPath, {
  file: file,
  rev: rev
}).on('data', function(type, data) {
  // type can be 'line' or 'commit'
  console.log(type, data);
}).on('error', function(err) {
  console.error(err.message);
  process.exit(1);
}).on('end', function() {
  console.log('±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±');
  console.log("That's all, folks!");
});

Sample output:
