LATEX-GIT-LOG(1)                Robin Schneider               LATEX-GIT-LOG(1)

       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 continued.

       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.
