Svndigest is a tool for calculating statistics of a project under Subversion control. Svndigest traverses a directory structure and calculates developer statistics for all subversion controlled entries. The result is written to a user specifiable target directory in HTML format.

For each developer svndigest calculates the number of contributed lines in the latest revision. The developer who made the latest change to a line is considered as the contributor of that line regardless of who actually originally created that line. For each revision svndigest calculates the contribution from each developer in terms of lines have not been modified since that specific revision.

Svndigest distinguishes between different types of lines: line of code, line of comment, and other lines (see Parsing?).


The svndigest statistics for the svndigest project is updated nightly. The bleeding edge version of svndigest is used to create the statistics.


If you want to live on bleeding edge software, download the latest (maybe unstable) version through

svn checkout svndigest

The latest release can be downloaded as gzipped tar file, svndigest-0.5.tar.gz (MD5).
