Git commit time machine.

Project Description

git-ctm = git commit Time Machine

Sometimes you need to create a commit with particular timestamp. git-ctm provides a command-line tool ctm for easy committing with desired timestamp:

$ ctm -d 'Thu Feb 8 03:14:15 2018 +0200' -m 'my commit message'

# is the same as
$ GIT_AUTHOR_DATE='Thu Feb 8 03:14:15 2018 +0200'    \
  GIT_COMMITTER_DATE='Thu Feb 8 03:14:15 2018 +0200' \
  git commit -m 'my commit message'

All commits in this project are done with ctm itself.


From PyPI using pip package manager:

pip install --upgrade git-ctm

Or install the latest sources from GitHub:

pip install

Or just put ctm PEX (Python EXecutable) file somewhere in the $PATH:

$ git clone
$ cd git-ctm
$ sudo cp ctm /usr/local/bin/

Now ctm command-line tool should be available to use, try:

ctm --version


$ ctm --help
Usage:  ctm -d <date> -m <msg>
        ctm -p

  -d <date>      Commit date and time
  -m <msg>       Commit message
  -p             Print date template

  --help         Print usage
  --version      Print version
