Local git statistics including GitHub-like contributions calendars.
I'd be curious to see your calendar with all your commits. Ping me on Twitter (@IonicaBizau). 😄 Until then, here's my calendar:
You can install the package globally and use it as command line tool:
# Install the package globallynpm i -g git-stats# Initialize git hooks# This is for tracking the new commitscurl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/IonicaBizau/git-stats/master/scripts/init-git-post-commit | bash
git-stats --help and see what the CLI tool can do.
$ git-stats --help Usage: git-stats [options] Local git statistics including GitHub-like contributions calendars. Options: -r, --raw Outputs a dump of the raw JSON data. --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. -s, --since <date> Optional start date. -u, --until <date> Optional end date. -g, --global-activity Shows global activity calendar in the current repository. -n, --disable-ansi Forces the tool not to use ANSI styles. -l, --light Enables the light theme. -d, --data <path> Sets a custom data store file. -a, --authors Shows a pie chart with the author related contributions in the current repository. -h, --help Displays this help. -v, --version Displays version information. Examples: $ 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 https://github.com/IonicaBizau/git-stats.
Importing and deleting commits
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: https://github.com/IonicaBizau/git-stats-importer
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
Importing all the commits from GitHub and BitBucket
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 https://github.com/IonicaBizau/repository-downloader.git# Go to repository downloader$ cd repository-downloader# Install the dependencies$ npm install# Start downloading and importing$ ./start
What about the GitHub Contributions calendar?
If you want to visualize the calendars that appear on GitHub profiles, you can do that using
# Install ghcal$ npm install -g ghcal# Check out @alysonla's contributions$ ghcal -u alysonla
For more detailed documentation, check out the repository: https://github.com/IonicaBizau/ghcal.
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.
Using the configuration file
You can tweak the git-stats behavior using a configuration file in your home directory:
This file should export an object, like below (defaults are listed):
moduleexports =// "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 weekfirst_day: "Sun"// This defaults to *one year ago*// It can be any parsable datesince: undefined// This defaults to *now*// It can be any parsable dateuntil: undefined// Don't show authors by default// If true, this will enable the authors pieauthors: false// No global activity by default// If true, this will enable the global activity calendar in the current projectglobal_activity: false;
Since it's a js file, you can
require any other modules there.
Saving the data as HTML and images
git-stats --raw outputs raw JSON format which can be consumed by other tools to generate results such as HTML files or images.
git-stats-html interprets the JSON data and generates an HTML file. Example:
# Install git-stats-htmlnpm install -g git-stats-html# Export the data from the last year (generate out.html)git-stats --raw | git-stats-html -o out.html# Export data since 2015 (save the results in out.html)git-stats --since '1 January 2015' --raw | ./bin/git-stats-html -o out.html --big
# Install pageresnpm install -g pageres-cli# Generate the image from HTMLpageres out.html 775x250
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! 💫
Here is an example how to use this package as library. To install it locally, as library, you can do that using
# Using npmnpm install --save git-stats# Using yarnyarn add git-stats
// Dependenciesvar GitStats = ;// Create the GitStats instancevar g1 = ;// Display the ansi calendarg1;
