gitstats is a statistics generator for git repositories. It is mostly intended for developers, as a way to check some development statistics for a project.
Currently it produces only HTML output with tables and graphs.
Here is a list of some statistics generated currently:
- General statistics: total files, lines, commits, authors.
- Activity: commits by hour of day, day of week, hour of week, month of year, year and month, and year.
- Authors: list of authors (name, commits (%), first commit date, last commit date, age), author of month, author of year.
- Files: file count by date, extensions
- Lines: Lines of Code by date
- Python (>= 2.4.4) (python3 is not supported)
- Git (>= 188.8.131.52)
- Gnuplot (>= 4.0.0)
- a git repository (bare clone will work as well)
The above versions are not absolute requirements; older versions may work also.
gitstats does not currently need to be installed; it's used right from the directory (it also assumes some files like the stylesheet are in .)
Suppose you have a git project at /mnt/src/git/project and you want to save the statistics to ~/public_html/project
You would run:
$ ./git-stats /mnt/src/git/project ~/public_html/project
or with git-stats executable in your PATH:
$ git stats /mnt/src/git/project ~/public_html/project
(go grab a cup of coffee if it's a large project :)
$ open ~/public_html/project/index.html
Install for windows 7
Add variables to PATH
Unzip GitStats in your favorite git working repo
Open a terminal windows+r then write cmd
Go in the repo where you unzip GitStats with cd
$ python git-stats input-file output-file
- Lots of memory and fast disk for large projects
