git pretty log

SkyHi @ Tuesday, June 19, 2012
So, are you tired of this old and bored git log screen?

How about this one, instead?

It's simple. Just type in:
git log --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset' --abbrev-commit --
I guess that's a bit too long, eh? Let's just make an alias. Copy and paste the line below on your terminal:
git config --global alias.lg "log --color --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset' --abbrev-commit --"
And every time you need to see your log, just type in
git lg
Or, if you want to see the lines that changed
git lg -p

From my .gitconfig:
    # --- LOGS ---
    ll   = "log --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit"
    lg   = log --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit --graph --decorate --date=relative
    lgt  = log --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr)%Creset' --abbrev-commit --date=relative
    lgtt = log --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr)%Creset' --abbrev-commit --date=relative
