Since writing this gist I've created The BFG Repo-Cleaner, a faster, simpler alternative to git-filter-branch for cleansing bad data out of your Git repository history:

  • Removing Crazy Big Files
  • Removing Passwords, Credentials & other Private data

The BFG is 10 - 50x faster than git-filter-branch, turning an overnight job into one that takes less than ten minutes.
