  • I found some good help for running on windows from code project, but it won't let me paste the link here, so google for it if you also need help getting it to run on windows. Short of it is: 1. Get python 2.X, Get gnuplot, Get Github for windows 2. Set PATH variable to see python.exe and git path for windows (for me was under \AppData\Local\GitHub\PortableGit_c2ba306e53~\bin) 3. Download zipped stats, extract, and rename gitstats to 4. From a command line, call python to run and feed it the source github directory and an output directory, and it will generate some sweet html stats for you.

  • Excellent tool !! Very easy to download and install. Very helpful to capture git repository statistics! Thanks a Ton!!

  • Easy to apply. Thanks for this tool.

  • Easy and quick to install. I am missing some documentation though for detailed configuration.

  • I just tried it for the first time on my repo. Nice! I wanted to see how the activity has changed over time. And this is displayed very nicely. It was easy to install and use. I will continue to use it.
