Documentation

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.

Install

pip install fix-author

Usage

λ fix-author.exe --help
Available commands:
  fix
      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 123@q3.com

fix-author fix -fu thautwarm -te 123@q3.com
  • 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.
