git-effort — Show effort statistics on file(s)

Synopsis

git-effort [--above <value>] [<path>...] [-- [<log options>...]]

Description

Shows effort statistics about files in the repository.

Display includes:
- Commits: number of commits per file - highlighting files with most activity.
- Active days: total number of days which contributed modifications to this file.

Options

--above <value>
Ignore files with commits <= a value.

<path>...

Only count commits that touches the given paths.

Note: git-effort does not accept revision ranges, but the underlying git log does (See the examples).

<log options>...

Options for git log. Note that you must use -- to separate options to git log from options to git effort. This makes it possible to only count commits you are interested in. Not all options are relevant in the context of git-effort, but those that are is listed under the "Commit Limiting" section on the git-log manpages.

Examples

Note: Output will first appear unsorted, then the screen is cleared and the sorted list is output. The initial unsorted list is not shown in the examples for brevity.

Displays "effort" statistics:

$ git effort --above 5
