Git wrapper redacting author and committer dates.
git-privacy: Keep your coding hours private
Git-privacy redacts author and committer dates to keep your coding hours more private. You can choose the level of redaction: only remove minutes and seconds from your dates or even hide day or month. The original dates are encrypted and stored in the commit message in case you might need them.
pip3 install gitprivacy
Note: Git-privacy requires Python version 3.5 or later.
- Add the following to
.git/configand adapt it to your needs:
[privacy] password = <your-password> mode = reduce pattern = "ms" #limit = 9-17
- Choose a strong password. It is used to encrypt your timestamps.
- Pick a redaction pattern from the following options:
- M: Sets the month to January
- d: Sets the day to the first day of the month
- h: Sets the hour to midnight
- m: Sets the minute to zero (full hour)
- s: Sets the seconds to zero (full minute)
- Set an acceptable timestamp range (
limit). Outliers are rounded towards the set limits, e.g., commits at 17:30 (5:30pm) are set to 17:00. Only full hours are currently supported. Omit the limits setting to disable.
git-privacy init. This sets the necessary Git hooks.
Redaction of New Commits
New commits are automatically redacted if git-privacy is initialised in a repo. This is achieve via a post-commit hook.
If you want to manually redact the last commit, run:
git-privacy redate --only-head
View Unredacted Dates
To view the unredacted commit dates, git-privacy offers a git-log-like listing:
Bulk Re-dating of Commits
To redact and redate all commits of the currently active branch run:
WARNING: This will completely rewrite the history and will lead to diverging commit histories.
Optional: Timezone Change Warnings
Additionally you may install a pre-commit hook which currently checks if your timezone differs from the last commit. To do so simply execute:
git-privacy init --enable-check
