Prints total line count contribution per user for an SVN repository

I'm working in a group project currently and annoyed at the lack of output by my teammates. Wanting hard metrics of how awesome I am and how awesome they aren't, I wrote this command up.

It will print a full repository listing of all files, remove the directories which confuse blame, run svn blame on each individual file, and tally the resulting line counts. It seems quite slow, depending on your repository location, because blame must hit the server for each individual file. You can remove the -R on the first part to print out the tallies for just the current directory.

Alternatives

There are 19 alternatives - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives
svn ls -R | egrep -v -e "\/$" | tr '\n' '\0' | xargs -0 svn blame | awk '{print $2}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr

make usable on OSX with filenames containing spaces. note: will still break if filenames contain newlines... possible, but who does that?!

svn ls -R | egrep -v -e "\/$" | xargs svn blame | awk '{count[$2]++}END{for(j in count) print count[j] "\t" j}' | sort -rn

This one has a better performance, as it is a one pass count with awk. For this script it might not matter, but for others it is a good optiomization.

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

SWEET.

Comment by dorkusprime 228 weeks ago

sort -r should have been sort -nr (so that it sorts numerically, and not alphabetically!)

Comment by abdc 148 weeks and 1 day ago

is there any way to limit this to show line count per day?
