Any git repository contains a tonne of information about commits, contributors, and files. Extracting this information is not always trivial, mostly because of a gadzillion options to a gadzillion git commands – I don’t think there is a single person alive who knows them all. Probably not even Linus Torvalds himself.
git-quick-stats is a tool that simplifies access to some of that information and makes reports and statistics quick and easy to extract. It also works across UNIX-like operating systems, Mac OS X, and Windows.
