authors is a CLI application and an sbt plugin that produces a nicely formatted summary of authors that contributed to a project between two points in git history.
- The original idea by @rkuhn who came up with authors.pl using now unknown archaic language
- The rewrite of the original script by @johanandren who gave us the magnificent authors.scala
Usage of the sbt plugin
Add this to your sbt build plugins, in either
addSbtPlugin("lt.dvim.authors" % "sbt-authors" % "1.3")
sbt-authors is an AutoPlugin and therefore that is all that is required.
authors <from> <to>Fetches the authors summary between two points in git history and prints it to stdout. For example:
authors v0.20 v0.21- summary between
authors v0.20 HEAD- summary between
v0.20tag and the last commit
authorsFile <from> <to>Writes the same authors summary to a
authorsClipboard <from> <to>Puts the same authors summary to your clipboard.
Usage of the CLI tool
coursier to install and launch
cs install --contrib authors
Then go to the checkedout folder of your project repository and run the foillowing.
authors v1.1 v1.2
This will fetch the summary between the two tags, which will be printed to the stdout.
