"git blame" for Dropbox files

Project description

A Python command line tool which will convert the revision history of a Dropbox file into a git repository, so you can run git blame or git diff. Suggested by @cgranade.


pip install dropblame


drop blame /path/to/Dropbox/file

Syncs Dropbox revisions to a git repo and runs git blame. Any additional arguments will be passed to git blame.

drop cd /path/to/Dropbox/file

Syncs Dropbox revisions to a git repo and then opens a shell there, if you want to run diff or other operations. The commit messages contain Dropbox revision ids.


The first time you run drop you will be asked for configuration details to connect to Dropbox, which will be stored in ~/.dropblame/config.yml.

Note that this tool can only go back as far as the Dropbox API will allow, which is currently 100 revisions.

I’ve only tested this on Linux so far.
