If you’ve ever been working heavily on a project that uses git, you’d know, that sometimes it’s good to have a few extras to help you out, and that’s what TJ Holowaychuk’s recent project git-extras provides!

Currently git-extras includes:

  • git summary
  • git changelog
  • git commits-since
  • git count
  • git delete-branch
  • git delete-tag
  • git ignore
  • git release
  • git contrib
  • git repl

Most cover tasks such as counting commit contributions, or viewing commits based on time, others include changelog generation based on commits and quickly adding items to the .git-ignore file. The extras are also quite easy to install, just clone the repository, then [sudo] make install.
