Practical Git: View commit history with git log

Practical Git: View commit history with git log

0:40
It's often helpful to view the history of a code project; with Git, we can use the `git log` command to view all commits in our repo. This lets us view information about each commit like the commit id (for use in other git commands), author, author's email, and commit message. We can format the git log commit output to display more or less information or filter to specific commits using `git log {arguments}` which will be covered in the next few lessons of the course.
