DESCRIPTION

Plot your git commit history on the commandline with sparklines and "vertical" sparklines.

COMPARING GRAPHS

Comparing graphs is often difficult because the scaling changes for different data sets. For example these two data series produce identical graphs despite have very different data.

    $ spark 1 2 3 4 5
    ▁▂▄▆█
    $ spark 10 20 30 40 50
    ▁▂▄▆█

To solve this, you must put a max and a min in front of the data to get consistent scaling. For example:

    $ spark 50 1 1 2 3 4 5
    █▁▁▁▁▁▁
    $ spark 50 1 10 20 30 40 50
    █▁▂▃▅▆█

git-spark assumes the min is zero and users can pass in the max using the --scale option. (Note that git-spark chops off the max/min characters from the output so this is all hidden behind the scenes.)

The --scale option is also relavent to git-vspark.

INSTALLATION

cpanm is the standard tool the Perl community uses to download and install Perl libraries from the CPAN. The following should get you up and running quickly:

    curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - --sudo App::cpanminus
    cpanm App::Git::Spark
