Personal Git Commit Statistics
Simply make a
POST request to track your commits:

Let's automate this!
Git has so called Git Hooks! Simply put a hook is a script which is executed every time you use a certain git command. With the help of a
post-commit hook it's easy to ping the Hulkort API automatically:
# Create the post-commit hook somewhere mkdir ~/development/git-hooks cd ~/development/git-hooks echo '#!/bin/bash' >> post-commit echo 'curl -d "api_key=3695627b56d99b0eb392131d" http://hulkort.com/api/commits' >> post-commit # Set permissions so it can be executed chmod 755 post-commit # Find the folder where Git stores it's templates # A good place to start looking is '/usr/share/git-core/' find /usr -type d -name "hooks" /usr/share/git-core/templates/hooks # Link the post-commit hook into your template hooks cd /usr/share/git-core/templates/hooks ln -s ~/development/git-hooks/post-commit post-commit
From now on all new Git repositories you create will have the hook and will therefore track your commits. To add the hook to an already existing repository you just run
git init again. Git will re-initialize the repository and copy the
In order to get executed a hook has to be in the
.git/hooks directory of the repository. Nobody wants to add the
post-commit hook by hand to every new repository. Instead we use a template and let Git do all the work.
Whenever you run
git init Git will copy the template files into the repositorys
So all we have to do is place our
post-commit hook in the
git-core/templates/hooks directory. To make things clean we just link it, this way we can easily edit the hook anytime.
