build SQL database from version control repository

Project description

Vcdb scans a version control repository and builds an SQL database that can be queried. This simplifies monitoring version control activity and obtaining numbers from it.


Vcdb is available from and can be installed running:

$ pip install vcdb

The minimum supported Python version is 3.4.

The Subversion command line client svn must be installed and located in the command search path ($PATH resp. %PATH%).


To build a database for vcdb’s own repository run:

$ vcdb sqlite:////tmp/vcdb.db

Currently vcdb only supports Subversion. Because Github provides a Subversion interface for git repositories you can still analyze them using a call like the one above.

You can then query the database using e.g. the sqlite command line client, for example:

$ sqlite3 /tmp/vcdb.db "select count(1) from changes"

The data model is a work in progress, so their is no documentation yet. To see the SQL code used to create all available tables, columns and their relations, run:

$ sqlite3 /tmp/vcdb.db ".schema"

To see all available command line options, run:

$ vcdb --help

To see the current version number, run:

$ vcdb --version
