git-filter-repo for Rewriting Git History
git-filter-repo is a standalone Python script that can be used to rewrite the history of a Git repository, similar to the BFG Repo-Cleaner tool. It provides a powerful set of filters that can be used to modify the repository history in various ways, such as changing the author name/email, rewriting commit messages, removing sensitive data, and more. Unlike the BFG Repo-Cleaner,
git-filter-repo is actively maintained and recommended by the Git project. It’s designed to be more efficient and flexible than the BFG Repo-Cleaner, and can handle larger repositories more easily. To use
git-filter-repo, you can clone the repository and run the
git-filter-repo script with the desired filters and options. The script will rewrite the history of the repository based on the specified filters, and create a new repository with the modified history.
