Oper is a basic history tool for git repositories managed by google's git-repo tool.

It can show the history of the last n days across all managed git repositories.

Oper is inspired by tig, but is far for more basic. Don't expect any commands or additional views.




Ubuntu releases are available here. After downloading the package which fits your ubuntu version you can install it with

sudo apt install ./<path-to-deb-file>

Other Operating Systems

Oper is written in rust. You need the rust toolchain installed to be able to use it:


Then you simply install oper with:

cargo install oper


  • Define the number of days to include in the history with the --days cli switch
  • Filter commits by using the --author or --message cli switches
  • Scroll in the diff view with j (down) or k (up)
  • Press i to inspect a change in gitk (you need to install gitk seperatly)
  • Quit oper by pressing q
