Modifying the commit history of git repositories in order to write messages in GitHub's contribution graph.

How to run it

the user need to be configured for the script to run. The environment
variables for the email and username are
$ ruby commitart.rb /absolute/path/to/existing/repo GITHUB
Assumption: the repository you are targeting already exists.
- gitfiti - uses python to make raw git calls and allows you to draw pictures such as the '1up' mushroom from Mario.
- git-draw - interactive chrome plugin that allows you to draw directly on the heat map and then export the script.
