Jekyll::GitMetadata

Expose Git metadata to Jekyll. Just like how Github exposes repository metadata, this plugin will expose information about your git repository for your templates. For example:

{{site.git.total_commits}} # => Will return the total number of commits for your Jekyll repository

Installation

Add to your Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-git_metadata'

Add to your _config.yml:

gems:
  - jekyll-git_metadata

Usage

This plugin adds a hash of git information to the site and page variables. The hash looks something like this:

{"authors"=>
  [
   {"commits"=>2, "name"=>"Ivan Tse", "email"=>"ivan@example.com"},
   {"commits"=>5, "name"=>"John Smith", "email"=>"john@example.com"}
  ],
 "total_commits"=>7,
 "total_additions"=>57,
 "total_subtractions"=>22,
 "first_commit"=>
  {"short_sha"=>"d15cbe8",
   "long_sha"=>"d15cbe8d0f4d4db9efda7a3daabbe966c21f3848",
   "author_name"=>"John Smith",
   "author_email"=>"john@example.com",
   "author_date"=>"Thu Jan 16 23:36:00 2014 -0500",
   "commit_name"=>"John Smith",
   "commit_email"=>"john@example.com",
   "commit_date"=>"Thu Jan 16 23:36:00 2014 -0500",
   "message"=>"A commit!"},
 "last_commit"=>
  {"short_sha"=>"f88ca3b",
   "long_sha"=>"f88ca3bff630efb6cdb356fad3d640534b109572",
   "author_name"=>"Ivan Tse",
   "author_email"=>"ivan@example.com",
   "author_date"=>"Mon Jul 14 04:04:47 2014 -0400",
   "commit_name"=>"John Smith",
   "commit_email"=>"john@example.com",
   "commit_date"=>"Mon Jul 14 04:04:47 2014 -0400",
   "message"=>"Fix some stuff"}}

To access this hash, use either page.git or site.git. page.git contains the git information about that particuliar page/file. site.git contains the git information for the entire git repository. site.git also includes total_files and project_name variables.
