latex-git-log - Generates the version history of a git project as LaTeX source code.


latex-git-log [options]


--author set this if you want the author included
--startcommit set the start value of count commit
--width set the width in cm of the commit message field in the LaTeX table
--git-c-add set an base URL to link to a commit
--user set a github user to derive the base URL
--repo set a github repository to derive the base URL
--lang language of the legend and all strings in the output
--version, -v print version of this script
--help brief help message
--man full documentation


--width Set the width in cm of the commit message field in the LaTeX table. If this
parameter is not set then the table is not vertically limited. That means that if
you have a very long commit message then the table will probably not fit on the
page and you will get a "Overfull" error message from TeX.

In this case you should specify the width of the column containing the commit
messages. I normally use something like --width=14 for DIN A4 in landscape.

Set an base URL to link to a commit. This script will automatically try to use
the base URL for github.

--lang Set the language of the legend and all strings in the output. Be default the
language of your system is used but you can overwrite this with this parameter.

Currently this script only supports English and German. If you need a translation
to another language then you can either create a .po file or I can register this
project on one of those websites for online translation.


You can use it like this:

latex-git-log --width=6 --lang=en > example-output.tex


Of this script
This module requires these other modules and libraries:


Everything else should already be installed.

To compile the output
The table is using the longtable package and the links to a web resource for each commit
use the \href macro from hyperref. So these two packages have to be loaded.

Furthermore you need to defined the macro \longtableendfoot which will be expanded on the
bottom of every page if the table will be continued on the next page. You can defined it
to a localized message to inform the reader that this table is not complete and will be


This program will output the entire version history as table written in LaTeX if it is
executed within a git repository.

It is intended that you redirect the standard output of this script to a file which can
then be included from your main TeX document.

Because the table can be very large you might want to put the thing on a landscape page.
