Gipeda – the Git Performance Dashboard

What is gipeda?

Gitpeda is a a tool that presents data from your program’s benchmark suite (or any other source), with nice tables and shiny graphs.

It is only a frontend and does not help with or care about collecting the data. So it is up to you whether you have a polling shell script loop, a post-commit hook or a elaborate jenkins setup. As long as the performance data ends up in the logs/ directory, gipeda is happy.

Gipeda produces static pages. In fact, the (single) html file and the accompagning JavaScript code is completely static. Giepda just generates a large number of json files. This has the advantage of easy deployment: Just put gipeda in your webspace of copy the files to some static web hosting and you are done. This putts very little load on your server, is cache friendly and has no security problems.

Do you want to see it live? Check out these:

Setting it up

  • Clone gipedia somewhere, possibly directly into your webspace.

  • Install a Haskell compiler, including the cablal tool.

  • Install the dependencies:

     cabal install --dependencies-only
  • Compile it:

     cabal install --bindir=.
  • Create a settings.yaml. You can look at the example file.

  • Clone the repository of your project into repository/. A bare clone is sufficient, e.g.

     git clone  --bare git:// repository
  • Download a bunch of JavaScript libraries by runing ./

Gipeda does not work without at least some logs, so lets add them.

Adding data

Gipeda expect simple CSV files for each revision, of the form


But likely your benchmark suite does not generate them in this format directly. Hence, put whatever format you have (text base logs, JUnit reports, whatever) into the directory logs, named <gitrev>.log, e.g. logs/0279a7d327a3b962ffa93a95d47ea5d9ee31e25c.log.

Then create a script log2csv that expects the filename of such a log on on the command line and produces the desired CSV file.

Running gipeda

With everything in place, you can now run


and it will create a bunch of JSON files in site/out/. With ./gipda -j4 you can parallize it.

You should do this everytime a new log file appears in logs/. You should also make sure your repository is up-to-date, e.g. by running git -C repository pull or, if it is a bare clone, git -C repository fetch origin "+refs/heads/*:refs/heads/*" --prune.

Using gipedia

Finally, you simply point your browser to the site/index.html. The page should be mostly self-explanatory. If you don’t see anything, it might be because of the filter in the top-right corner. Try to enable all buttons, even the =.

To host this on a webserver, just put the site/ directory in your webspace.
