git-quick-statsis a simple and efficient way to access various statistics in git repository.

Any git repository contains tons of information about commits, contributors, and files. Extracting this information is not always trivial, mostly because of a gadzillion options to a gadzillion git commands – I don’t think there is a single person alive who knows them all. Probably not evenLinus Torvalds (himself:).

Possible arguments in short and long form:

Git log since / until

You can set variable_ GIT_SINCE,_ GIT_UNTILand limit the git log

export_GIT_SINCE=""2017 - 01 - 20"export_GIT_UNTIL="2017 - 01 - 22""

then rungit quick-statsaffect all stats, except “My daily status” and “Git changelogs”)

You can set variable_ GIT_LIMITfor limited output (it will affect: “Git changelogs” and “Branch tree view”)

You can exclude directory from the stats by usingpathspec

export_GIT_PATHSPEC='' (***********************************************************************:! directory'

Color themes

You can change to the legacy color scheme by toggling the variable_ MENU_THEMEbetweendefaultandlegacy

(Q:) I get some errors after run git-quick-stats in cygwin like/ usr / local / bin / git-quick-stats: line 2: $ ' r': command not found

(A:) You can run dos2unix app in cygwin/ bin / dos2unix.exe / usr / local / bin / git-quick-stats. This will convert it to Unix format and you then should be able to run it.

Code reviews

All submissions, including submissions by project members, require review.
We use Github pull requests for this purpose.

Some tips for good pull requests:

  • Use our code
    When in doubt, try to stay true to the existing code of the project.
  • Write a descriptive commit message. What problem are you solving and what are the consequences? Where and what did you test? Some good tips: (here) and.
  • If your PR consists of multiple commits which are successive improvements / fixes to your first commit, consider squashing them into a single commit (git rebase -i) such that your PR is a single commit on top of the current HEAD. This make reviewing the code so much easier, and our history more readable.
