Git Timeline

Allows bulk modification of the commit dates of a repository, changing the history of a repository.


# Creates the demo repository
./git-timeline.bash clone

# Copies the demo repository to the working environment
./git-timeline.bash working

# Exports the history of the git repository to files
./git-timeline.bash history

You can then edit the dates of the three files emitted:

  • FIRST - The first commit to the repository
  • HISTORY - The commit history
  • LATEST - The most recent commit to the repository

After you have done this, you can then run apply and show:

./git-timeline.bash apply
./git-timeline.bash show

If you are finding it difficult to get the right timelines (or just working with the scripts), you can use cycle to start fresh, and re-apply. This does not alter the modified time files.
