Show a diff inside of git log
Posted on 2019-05-01
If you've ever needed to view all the changes that are happening in a repository
or a branch, there are two flags for the
git log command that should interest
git log -c and
git log --cc.
git log -c shows you a diff view of changes made in each commit
referenced in the log. If you're viewing a single branch, you can view the
line-level changes, commit by commit, that went into getting the current branch
to where it is. Very handy!
--cc flag does the same thing, but it hides some automatic merge changes.
I haven't seen very much difference in the behavior of these two flags myself.
