Git Git statistics Commits per developer


Git shortlog is used to summarize the git log outputs and group the commits by author.

By default, all commit messages are shown but argument --summary or -s skips the messages and gives a list of authors with their total number of commits.

--numbered or -n changes the ordering from alphabetical (by author ascending) to number of commits descending.

git shortlog -sn        #Names and Number of commits

git shortlog -sne       #Names along with their email ids and the Number of commits


git log --pretty=format:%ae \
| gawk -- '{ ++c[$0]; } END { for(cc in c) printf "%5d %s\n",c[cc],cc; }'

Note: Commits by the same person may not be grouped together where their name and/or email address has been spelled differently. For example John Doe and Johnny Doe will appear separately in the list. To resolve this, refer to the .mailmap feature.
