Just a short one. I want to share a simple command to display nicer git log in the terminal. git log has --pretty=format option built-in, we are just going to pass formatting to it.

git log --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset'

And it looks like this:

Nicer git log

Then add it to your .bash_profile as an alias (I’m using glog) and that’s it.

alias glog="git log --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset'"
