In this section, you will discover commands for viewing the history of your project.
When you clone a repository, you receive the history of all of the commits made in that repository. The log command allows us to view that history on our local machine.
Let's take a look at some of the option switches you can use to customize your view of the project history. You can find these options, and many more, on git-scm.com. (Note:
--graph is default on most Git Bash for Windows terminals.)
$ git log $ git log --oneline $ git log --oneline --graph $ git log --oneline --graph --decorate $ git log --oneline --graph --decorate --all $ git log --stat $ git log --patch
Use the up and down arrows or press enter to view additional log entries. Type
qto quit viewing the log and return to the command prompt.
