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
./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.
