GIT quick statistics Backers on Open Collective Sponsors on Open Collective Tweet Travis Homebrew package Linuxbrew package

git-quick-stats is a simple and efficient way to access various statistics in a git repository.

Any git repository may contain tons of information about commits, contributors, and files. Extracting this information is not always trivial, mostly because there are a gadzillion options to a gadzillion git commands – I don’t think there is a single person alive who knows them all. Probably not even Linus Torvalds himself :).

Git log since and until

You can set the variables _GIT_SINCE and/or _GIT_UNTIL before running git-quick-stats to limit the git log. These work similar to git's built-in --since and --until log options.

export _GIT_SINCE="2017-01-20"
export _GIT_UNTIL="2017-01-22"

Once set, run git quick-stats as normal. Note that this affects all stats that parse the git log history until unset.

Git log limit

You can set variable _GIT_LIMIT for limited output. It will affect the "changelogs" and "branch tree" options.

export _GIT_LIMIT=20

Git log options

You can set _GIT_LOG_OPTIONS for git log options:

export _GIT_LOG_OPTIONS="--ignore-all-space --ignore-blank-lines"

Git pathspec

You can exclude a directory from the stats by using pathspec

export _GIT_PATHSPEC=':!directory'

You can also exclude files from the stats. Note that it works with any alphanumeric, glob, or regex that git respects.

export _GIT_PATHSPEC=':!package-lock.json'

Git merge view strategy

You can set the variable _GIT_MERGE_VIEW to enable merge commits to be part of the stats by setting _GIT_MERGE_VIEW to enable. You can also choose to only show merge commits by setting _GIT_MERGE_VIEW to exclusive. Default is to not show merge commits. These work similar to git's built-in --merges and --no-merges log options.

export _GIT_MERGE_VIEW="enable"
export _GIT_MERGE_VIEW="exclusive"

Git branch

You can set the variable _GIT_BRANCH to set the branch of the stats. Works with commands --git-stats-by-branch and --csv-output-by-branch.

export _GIT_BRANCH="master"

Color themes

You can change to the legacy color scheme by toggling the variable _MENU_THEME between default and legacy

export _MENU_THEME="legacy"

FAQ

Q: I get some errors after run git-quick-stats in cygwin like /usr/local/bin/git-quick-stats: line 2: $'\r': command not found

A: You can run the dos2unix app in cygwin as follows: /bin/dos2unix.exe /usr/local/bin/git-quick-stats. This will convert the script from the CR-LF convention that Microsoft uses to the LF convention that UNIX, OS X, and Linux use. You should then should be able to run it as normal.

Q: How they could be used in a project with many git projects and statistics would show a summary of all git projects?

A: If you want to include submodule logs, you can try using the following: export _GIT_LOG_OPTIONS="-p --submodule=log" (more info about git log --submodule)

Code reviews

All submissions, including submissions by project members, require review.
We use GitHub pull requests for this purpose.

Some tips for good pull requests

  • Use our code
    When in doubt, try to stay true to the existing code of the project.
  • Write a descriptive commit message. What problem are you solving and what are the consequences? Where and what did you test? Some good tips: here and here.
  • If your PR consists of multiple commits which are successive improvements / fixes to your first commit, consider squashing them into a single commit (git rebase -i) such that your PR is a single commit on top of the current HEAD. This make reviewing the code so much easier, and our history more readable.
