Examples

 gitql "your query" 
or
 git ql "your query" 

Look the table of commits:

commits
author
author_email
committer
committer_email
hash
date
message
full_message

(see more tables here)

You can do:

  •  select hash, author, message from commits limit 3 
  •  select hash, message from commits where 'hell' in full_message or 'Fuck' in full_message 
  •  select hash, message, author_email from commits where author = 'cloudson' 
  •  select date, message from commits where date < '2014-04-10' 
  •  select message from commits where 'hell' in message order by date asc

Notes:

  • Gitql doesn't want kill  git log  😅 . It was created just for science!!
  • It's read-only. Nothing about delete, insert or update commits 😝
  • The limit default is 10 rows
  • It's inspired by textql
  • But, why gitql is a compiler/interpreter instead of just read a sqlite database with all commits, tags and etc? Answer: Because we would need to sync the tables everytime before run sql and we would have sqlite bases for each repository. 😐
