I have a local branch tracking the remote/master branch. After running
git-log, the log will show all commits in the remote tracking branch as well as the current branch. However, because there were so many changes made to the remote branch, I need to see just the commits made to the current local branch.
What would be the Git command to use to only show commits for a specific branch?
remote = origin
merge = refs/heads/master
Assuming that your branch was created off of
master, then while in the branch (that is, you have the branch checked out):
git log master..
If you are not in the branch, then you can add the branch name to the "git log" command, like this:
git log master..branchname
If your branch was made off of
origin/master, then say
origin/master instead of
Goofy alternative using "cherry"
You can make the "cherry" command do this as well, although the output is not as useful. While in a branch, do this to find out what commits are in the branch that are not in master:
git cherry -v master
