This is a small script to visualize the time when commits are committed in a git repository. The idea is stolen from Github's punchcard picture(Kudos to Github)!
WHY IS IT INTERESTING
It shows how this repository is developed in developer's time. As I see it, I can get a simple clue whether a project is a spare time project or this project is totally under a company's control, thus resulting in commits from 8AM to 6PM, Monday to Friday.
- python (of course!)
- pycairo module
Then you're free to go!
cp git-punchcard /usr/local/bin
- make sure that
/usr/local/binis in your
- in the same folder, you should see a file named
output.png, that's the generated image.
If you want a different name, then simply invoke
git punchcard file=<another-name.png>.
The default width of a picture is 1100px. If you'd like
to have a higher resolution, you can run
git punchcard file=<another-name.png> width=<new-width>.
If you would like to filter by a particular author then do so as follows. (all parameters are available)
git punchcard author=<authorname>
The image gets scaled automatically.
This project is under public domain, you can do whatever you want ;) However, if you're improving this tool a bit, you can freely fork it and then send me back a pull request. I would be very glad to integrate it.
