See which Git command you use the most

git

Paste this into your terminal:

history|grep git| awk '{CMD[$3]++;count++;}END { for (a in CMD)print CMD[a] " " CMD[a]/count*100 "% " a;}' | grep -v "./" | column -c3 -s " " -t | sort -nr | nl |  head -n10

Increase -n to see more commands.

Example output (my own):

Modified for zsh:

grep git ~/.histfile | awk '{CMD[$2]++;count++;}END { for (a in CMD)print CMD[a] " " CMD[a]/count*100 "% " a;}' | grep -v "./" | column -c3 -s " " -t | sort -nr | nl |  head -n10

@passcod there's no need to do cat ~/.histfile | grep git, it's much better to do grep git ~/.histfile.

I've adapted to read my ~/.bash_history instead, though it's pretty much the same script:

grep ^git ~/.bash_history | awk '{CMD[$2]++;count++;}END { for (a in CMD)print CMD[a] " " CMD[a]/count*100 "% " a;}' | grep -v "./" | column -c3 -s " " -t | sort -nr | nl |  head -n10

My results are:

 1  18  15.2542%   co
 2  15  12.7119%   st
 3  14  11.8644%   ci

  • co: checkout

I mostly checkout via a shell alias 'gco', and check status with a 'gst' alias, but other than that I grep a -lot-.

@passcod @inkel: in zsh, it's better to use

history 1 . | .......

or ${HISTFILE} instead of ~/.histfile

It seems zshell has a tendency to re-use elements of the history file, so commands like git status that are used identically many times leads to a single entry in the history file, and therefore the statistics get all wrong.
