Plot your git commit history on the commandline with sparklines. This is a mashup of git, spark, and Perl.

You only need to bother with --scale option if you want to compare the output from 2 different git-spark commands. To better understand this option please read this short blog post.


First, download spark and put it somewhere in your $PATH. (TODO: Include spark in this distro.)

Next, install git-spark with cpanm. 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 | perl - --sudo App::cpanminus
    cpanm App::Git::Spark
