Gitchart is a Python script to build charts from a Git repository.
It can build following charts, as SVG or PNG:
authors (pie chart)
commits by hour of day, day, day of week, month of year, year, year/month (bar charts)
commits by hour of week (dot chart)
files by type (pie chart)
Python >= 2.7
pip install pygal)
cairosvg, to generate PNG files
You can install gitchart with this command from the source repository:
$ python setup.py install
A fake and untrusted package called "gitchart" was added by an usurper on
This is NOT an official gitchart package and was made without my authorization.
I can’t give any guarantee on its contents, so I don’t recommend to install this untrusted version.
Moreover, the "gitchart" organization on GitHub is a fork of this project with a different content (the official gitchart URL is https://github.com/flashcode/gitchart).
See the issue #5 for more information.
See output of command:
$ gitchart -h
Generate pie chart with authors:
$ gitchart -t "Git authors on project X" -r /path/to/gitrepo/ authors authors.svg
Generate bar chart with commits by year:
$ gitchart -r /path/to/gitrepo/ commits_year commits_year.svg
Generate bar chart with commits by version (git tag):
$ cd /path/to/gitrepo/ $ git tag | gitchart commits_version /tmp/commits_version.svg
Gitchart is used to build statistics for WeeChat: https://weechat.org/dev/stats/
