Git standup, how did I ever live without you?

Ben Halpern on March 21, 2017

I am sure you've been preparing for a meeting where a team typically discusses what they did yesterday and what they are planning to do today. Thes... [Read Full]

Now, if only it grabbed them across ALL my projects (or my org Git repos) and sent an email to everyone interested + dashboard that would be the best stand up tool!


And then we'd never need to talk to each other. Yay!


How about this one ? It can grab "wth did I do last week??" data from other sources, not just git repos, see for the current set of plugins. It does not solve the "dashboard" part but it definitely produces something that can easily be copypasted into any "status report" e-mail :)


I could help you on the "across ALL my projects" part. Wrote something similar to remember what I did (and where).


This is a good idea - I may write a little node script to use this tool and do just this! :)


Hit me up then, it would be great OSS or side project,

That didn't work for me, so instead I did the following to list all my git repos in ~/src

find . -depth -5 -type d -name ".git" | sed -e "s/\(\.\/\)\(.*\)\(\.git\)/~\/src\/\2/g" | tr '\n' ','

And then we'd never need to talk to each every again. Yay!


You can do something similar with TFS:

```tf history "$/" /recursive /user:YOURUSERNAME /noprompt | head -n NUMBEROFCHECKINS

and as a Powershell function:

```function tfhist {tf history "$/" /recursive /user:YOURUSERNAME /noprompt | head -n NUMBEROFCHECKINS}
set-alias standup tfhist

I had such high hopes. Installed it only found 1 commit in the last 20 days.


A lack of activity doesn’t always mean it’s broken or out of date. It could just mean they finished.


Yeah, especially for a personal utility that interacts with git. Not exactly Kubernetes-level stakes.


Damn! I wish I only worked with one repository. Who isn't lazy enough to publish a bash script that starts at the parent folder, iterates all the subfolders (git projects), calls the standup command inside each and writes the results of all in a single file?


Very neat.

But does the install really require sudo for such a trivial task? I would use this if I could install it in userspace.


This will save me a lot of time before stand ups meetings :-). Got to try it out


Nice. But all of this already exists in the built-in Version Control Logs and Local History in my Jetbrains IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

Level up you VS Coder folks and get a real IDE :)


+1. Any modern IDE with GIT integration provides this functionality with clear and nice graphics interface out of the box.
