Git Log


Git log lists commit history. It allows searching and filtering.

  • Initiate log

      git log
    
  • Retrieve set number of records:

      git log -n 2
    
  • Search commits by author. Allows user name or a regular expression.

      git log --author="user_name"
    

  • Search by comment message.

      git log --grep="<pattern>"
    
  • Search by date

      git log --since=1.month.ago --until=3.weeks.ago
