[ bsd3, program, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

Zampolit is a tool for checking how much work each contributor to a project is doing. It produces pretty graphs of word count per author. This is helpful when collaborating on projects that are mostly text, and do not necessarily break lines reliably or often.

Readme for zampolit-0.3

[back to package description]
## Zampolit
## Copyright (c) 2011 Brian Sniffen

To run [`Zampolit`]( and
collect the data for these pretty graphs, you need a few things:

* The version control system `git`, with its svn extensions.  
* Gnuplot.
* Haskell.

Athena and all modern operating systems have the first two, either
installed by default or in a locker or easily installed package.
But Haskell's more of a pain.  You can [download
it](, then run:

    cabal update
    cabal install zampolit
    git svn clone PATH/TO/YOUR/GAME # replace this
    cd YOUR/GAME

It will churn for a while through the entire history of your game,
then deposit `` and `GAME-wc.gnuplot`.  If you have Gnuplot
installed, it will even run gnuplot for you to produce `GAME-wc.pdf`.
