Code History Miner

Server for project code history analysis and visualization.

Download 0.1 beta, built on 25 May 2016


There is a lot of interesting and useful data captured in version control systems, yet we don't use it that much.
This is an attempt to make analyzing code history easy enough so that it can be done all the time.

See what happened on project. See trends in code changes. Look for code-change/behavioral patterns.

What does it do?

Similar to continuous integration Code History Miner is a web server which keeps running and analyzing code history.
You can setup projects pointing them at VCS repositories and get visualizations as output.
Analysis works on file level and, therefore, is programming language-agnostic.

For visualization examples see JUnit, Cucumber, Ruby on Rails, jQuery, Clojure, Groovy, Scala, IntelliJ.
