Generates gource video of multiple source code repositories.
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Generates gource video out of multiple repositories.
# First, get a local branch/clone of each repository.
# Then, pass the repositories as command line arguments.
# Example:
# $ /path/to/repo1 /path/to/repo2
for repo in $*; do
# generate a gource custom log file for each repo
logfile="$(mktemp /tmp/gource.XXXXXX)"
gource --output-custom-log "${logfile}" ${repo}
# make each repo appear on a separate branch by adding
# an extra parent directory to the path of the files in each project.
sed -i -E "s#(.+)\|#\1|/${repo}#" ${logfile}
let i=$i+1
combined_log="$(mktemp /tmp/gource.XXXXXX)"
cat ${logs[@]} | sort -n > $combined_log
