Grawkit is a tool that helps build SVG graphs from git command-line descriptions, and is built in Awk.
This tool was created in support of the "Orthogonal Git Workflow" post. Yes, this took way longer to write than the post itself.
Testing & Documentation
Makefile is provided for running tests and producing documentation for Grawkit. Run
make help in the project root for more information.
A full test-suite is provided (depending only on
awk), which should serve as a good example of the existing feature-set. Run it with
Copy the included
grawkit AWK script into your local search path (most commonly
$HOME/.local/bin), or just use it directly in this folder. Grawkit should work with most
POSIX-compatible AWK implementations, and has been tested against
busybox awk, and
Status & Usage
Grawkit has basic support for common
git commands such as
git tag and
git merge, allowing for fairly complex graphs. The integrated test-suite serves as an example, check the
tests folder for more.
In order to use this tool, either run the
grawkit executable against a file containing supported
git commands (any command not recognized will be silently ignored), or pass these in standard
input. For instance, given the following file
git commit -m "Commit on master" git commit -m "More stuff" git branch test-stuff git checkout test-stuff git commit -m 'Testing stuff' git commit git checkout master git commit
You can execute either:
cat test.txt | grawkit # or grawkit test.txt
Which will produce SVG markup to standard output, rendered as:
