AskGit - query your git repo with SQL  ↦

Built in Go, askgit is an open source CLI and coming soon web interface (linked above). With this tool in your toolbox, you can mine your repo for info like commit count by author on each day of the week:

    count(*) AS commits,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='0' THEN 1 END) AS sunday,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='1' THEN 1 END) AS monday,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='2' THEN 1 END) AS tuesday,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='3' THEN 1 END) AS wednesday,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='4' THEN 1 END) AS thursday,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='5' THEN 1 END) AS friday,
    count(CASE WHEN strftime('%w',author_when)='6' THEN 1 END) AS saturday,
FROM commits GROUP BY author_email ORDER BY commits

This got me very interested in this. I wrote up a tutoral using askgit and then another one for populating a sqlite database straight from the git log, which gives you a bit more insight into specific code changes here:

It’s an approach I wouldn’t have thought of without seeing your post in my feed, and then I kept running with it, so great work!

Very cool @wschenk, thanks for letting us know! Btw, whenever you write cool stuff in the future make sure to submit it so we can link you up as well ✊

(I just interviewed Jon Evans for The Changelog last week. You might enjoy that one. #HFC)
