This tool was originally written to help fetch repository statistics from student projects in the course Object-oriented Programming Project (TDA367/DIT211) at Chalmers University of Technology and Gothenburg University.
Today, gitinspector is used as a grading aid by universities worldwide.
Below are some example outputs for a number of famous open source projects. All the statistics were generated using the "-HTlrm" flags.

The Debian packages offered with releases of gitinspector are unofficial and very simple packages generated with stdeb. Christian Kastner is maintaining the official Debian packages. You can check the current status on the Debian Package Tracker. Consequently, there are official packages for many Debian based distributions installable via apt-get.
An npm package is provided for convenience as well. To install it globally, execute
npm i -g gitinspector.
