Gource is an amazing animated visualisation of a git repository.
Normally, gource shows files being added, removed, and changed in
the repository, and the user(s) making the changes. Of course it can be
used in this way in a repository using git-annex too; just run
The other way to use gource with git-annex is to visualise the movement of annexed file contents between repositories. In this view, the "users" are repositories, and they move around the file contents that are being added or removed from them with git-annex.
To use gource this way, first go into the directory you want to visualize,
git annex log to make an input file for
git annex log --gource | tee gource.log sort gource.log | gource --log-format custom -
git annex log can take a while, to speed it up you can use something
--after "4 months ago" to limit how far back it goes.
