fix author info in git commits

Project description

Fix Author

Sometimes, the history information of a committer could be missing by mistakes.

For instance, someone might configure his email incorrectly, or he might just not configure related stuffs at all, as a consequence, his commits cannot be recorded at his github home page, while his contributions to incorrectly configured projects are just ignored.

To solve this problem efficiently and conveniently, you can use fix-author.


pip install fix-author


λ fix-author.exe --help
Available commands:
      fu: from user/author name to change.
      tu: to user/name to be changed to.
      fe: from email/email to change.
      tu: to email/email to be changed to.

Here are four examples:

  • Change email for specific user

e.g: change thautwarm's email to

fix-author fix -fu thautwarm -te
  • Change username for specific email
fix-author fix -fe <specific email> -tu "<expected username>"
  • Change email when email and dated username are both specific
fix-author fix -fe <specific email> -fu <dated username> -tu <expected email>

Take care: after performing refactoring, you should use git push --force to overwrite that repo's history.
