Local git statistics, including a GitHub-like contributions calendars.

I'd be curious to see your calendar with all your commits. Ping me on Twitter (@IonicaBizau). :smile: Until then, here's my calendar:

You can install the package globally and use it as command line tool:

# Install the package globally 
npm i -g git-stats
# Initialize git hooks 
# This is for tracking the new commits 
curl -s | bash

Then, run git-stats --help and see what the cli tool can do.

$ git-stats --help
Usage: git-stats [options]
  -s, --since <date>     Optional start date.
  -u, --until <date>     Optional end date.
  -n, --no-ansi          Forces the tool not to use ANSI styles.
  -l, --light            Enables the light theme.
  -a, --authors          Shows a pie chart with the author related
                         contributions in the current repository.
  -g, --global-activity  Shows global activity calendar in the current
  -d, --data <path>      Sets a custom data store file.
  -f, --first-day <day>  Sets the first day of the week.
  --record <data>        Records a new commit. Don't use this unless you
                         are a mad scientist. If you are a developer, just
                         use this option as part of the module.
  -h, --help             Displays this help.
  -v, --version          Displays version information.
  git-stats # Default behavior (stats in the last year)
  git-stats -l # Light mode
  git-stats -s '1 January 2012' # All the commits from 1 January 2012 to now
  git-stats -s '1 January 2012' -u '31 December 2012' # All the commits from 2012
Your commit history is kept in ~/.git-stats by default. You can create ~/.git-stats-config.json to specify different defaults.
Documentation can be found at

I know it's not nice to start your git commit calendar from scratch. That's why I created git-stats-importer–a tool which imports or deletes the commits from selected repositories.

Check it out here:

The usage is simple:

# Install the importer tool 
$ npm install -g git-stats-importer
# Go to the repository you want to import 
cd path/to/my-repository
# Import the commits 
$ git-stats-importer
# ...or delete them if that's a dummy repository 
$ git-stats-importer --delete

Yes, that's also possible. I built a tool which downloads and then imports all the commits you have pushed to GitHub and BitBucket!

# Download the repository downloader 
$ git clone
# Go to repository downloader 
cd repository-downloader
# Install the dependencies 
$ npm install
# Start downloading and importing 
$ ./start

If you want to visualize the calendars that appear on GitHub profiles, you can do that using ghcal.

# Install ghcal 
$ npm install -g ghcal
# Check out @alysonla's contributions 
$ ghcal -u alysonla

If want to get even more GitHub stats in your terminal, you may want to try github-stats--this is like git-stats but with data taken from GitHub.

You can tweak the git-stats behavior using a configuration file in your home directory: ~/.git-stats-config.json.

This file will contain a JSON object like below (in this example comments are added to explain what's going on, but you should not include them since the JSON format doesn't support such comments). Defaults are listed.

    // "DARK", "LIGHT" or an object interpreted by IonicaBizau/node-git-stats-colors 
    "theme": "DARK"
    // The file where the commit hashes will be stored 
  , "path": "~/.git-stats"
    // First day of the week 
  , first_day: "Sun"
    // This defaults to *one year ago* 
    // It can be any parsable date 
  , since: undefined
    // This defaults to *now* 
    // It can be any parsable date 
  , until: undefined
    // Don't show authors by default 
    // If true, this will enable the authors pie 
  , authors: false
    // No global activity by default 
    // If true, this will enable the global activity calendar in the current project 
  , global_activity: false

git-stats is working fine in terminal emulators supporting ANSI styles. It should work fine on Linux and OS X.

If you run git-stats to display graph on Windows, please use a terminal that can properly display ANSI colors. Cygwin Terminal is known to work, while Windows Command Prompt and Git Bash do not. Improvements are more than welcome! :dizzy:

Here is an example how to use this package as library.

// Dependencies 
var GitStats = require("git-stats");
// Create the GitStats instance 
var g1 = new GitStats();
// Display the ansi calendar 
    theme: "DARK"
}, function (errdata) {
    console.log(err || data);
