Cumulative Blame

A simple set of wrappers around gitpython for creating pandas dataframes out of git data. The project is centered around two primary objects:

  • Repository
  • ProjectDirectory

A Repository object contains a single git repo, and is used to interact with it. A ProjectDirectory references a directory in your filesystem which may have in it multiple git repositories. The subdirectories are all walked to find any child repos, and any analysis is aggregated up from all of those into a single output (pandas dataframe).

Current functionality includes:

  • Commit history with extension and directory filtering
  • Edited files history with extension and directory filtering
  • Blame with extension and directory filtering
  • Branches
  • Tags
  • ProjectDirectory-level general information table
  • Approximate bus factor
  • Cumulative Blame as a time series
  • Github.com profile analysis via GitHubProfile object
  • Plotting helpers in utilities module
  • Punchcard dataframe and plotting utility
  • Filewise blame
  • File owner approximation
  • Estimation of hours spent per project or per author across projects

Please see examples for more detailed usage. The image above is generated using the repository object's cumulative blame function on stravalib.

Many of these functions are fairly intensive to run, so we also now support optional memory or redis based caching of certain methods.


Git-pandas supports python 2.7+ and 3.3+. To install use:

pip install git-pandas
