Compute various size metrics for a Git repository, flagging those that might cause problems

Git Large File Storage

Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server like or GitHub Enterprise.

Sounds useful, although I don't normally store large binaries inside git repos.

Talisman is a tool is to validate code changes that are to be pushed out of a local Git repository on a developer's workstation. By hooking into the pre-push hook provided by Git, it validates the outgoing changeset for things that look suspicious - such as potential SSH keys, authorization tokens, private keys etc. The aim is for Talisman to scan both file names & file content so that even potential problems embedded in source code and documentation can be caught.


GitPitch is a service by developers for developers that generates beautiful, slideshow presentations directly from markdown found in GitHub, GitLab and Bitbucket repos.

Yet another presentation tool. Looks useful though.
