How rotten is your git repo?
- How many branches have how many commits waiting to get into master?
- How much code is rotting in remote branches, waiting for release?
- How many harvested branches are sitting around occupying space in your repo?
Try it out.
$ npm -g install rotting $ cd ~/source/redback $ rotting -d Running against /Users/ceej/source/redback Checking branches against production branch master . Harvested branches: origin/keypair-multiget To delete all the harvested branches: git push origin :keypair-multiget; git branch -D keypair-multiget; All branches have been fully merged into master. Summary: rotting branches: 0 harvested branches: 1
My most common usage pattern for this tool is to look for branches that include my username, to make sure I'm cleaning up as I work. You can grep the output if you like, or use the
--filter option to consider only branches matching the given pattern. E.g.,

Usage: rotting --repo /path/to/git/repo --prod master Options: -r, --repo the repo to examine for rotting code [default: "."] -p, --prod the branch running in production [default: "master"] -c, --commits sort rotten branches by commit count instead of age [default: false] -d, --deadwood show git branch delete commands for all harvested branches [default: false] -f, --filter filter results to branches that contain this string [default: ""]
By default rotten branches are sorted by age, with the oldest unharvested branch shown first. You can instead sort by the number of unharvested commits by passing the
