Git Log

Shows the commit logs.

List commits that are reachable by following the parent links from the given commit(s), but exclude commits that are reachable from the one(s) given with a ^ in front of them. The output is given in reverse chronological order by default.



Show commit info only (Author, Date, Commit info)

# Show the sequence of commits (with Author, Date, Commit info only) starting from the current one, in reverse chronological order of the Git repository in the current working directory
$ git log

View changes briefly (contains commit SHA and comments only)

# View changes (briefly, contains commit SHA and comments only)
$ git log --oneline	

Show Commits by A File

查看特定 file 的 code change

Show code diff in each commit in a specified file

# Show the history of a particular file or directory, including differences
$ git log -p <path/to/file_or_directory>

列出修改了特定 file 的所有commit

git log --full-history -- [file path] shows the changes of a file and works even if the file was deleted.


$ git log --full-history  -- [file path]

If you want to see only the last commit, which deleted the file, use -1 in addition to the command above. Example:

$ git log --full-history -1 -- [file path]


Filter Commits

按作者查找 Commits

# Show the last N commits from a certain author:
$ git log -n number --author=author

按日期查找 Commits

# Show commits between two dates (yyyy-mm-dd):
$ git log --before="2017-01-29" --after="2017-01-17"

View Commits by Most Recent

If you want to return a specific number of commits, you can do so using the -n flag. Here’s an example of this flag in action:

git log -n 3

# Show a graph of commits in the current branch using only the first line of each commit message
