Pretty-print the contents of the commit logs in a given format,
where '<format>' can be one of 'oneline', 'short', 'medium',
'full', 'fuller', 'reference', 'email', 'raw', 'format:<string>'
and 'tformat:<string>'. When '<format>' is none of the above,
and has '%placeholder' in it, it acts as if
'--pretty=tformat:<format>' were given.
See the "PRETTY FORMATS" section for some additional details for each
format. When '=<format>' part is omitted, it defaults to 'medium'.
Note: you can specify the default pretty format in the repository
configuration (see linkgit:git-config[1]).
Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal commit object
name, show a prefix that names the object uniquely.
"--abbrev=<n>" (which also modifies diff output, if it is displayed)
option can be used to specify the minimum length of the prefix.
This should make "--pretty=oneline" a whole lot more readable for
people using 80-column terminals.
Show the full 40-byte hexadecimal commit object name. This negates
`--abbrev-commit`, either explicit or implied by other options such
as "--oneline". It also overrides the `log.abbrevCommit` variable.
This is a shorthand for "--pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit"
used together.
The commit objects record the encoding used for the log message
in their encoding header; this option can be used to tell the
command to re-code the commit log message in the encoding
preferred by the user. For non plumbing commands this
defaults to UTF-8. Note that if an object claims to be encoded
in `X` and we are outputting in `X`, we will output the object
verbatim; this means that invalid sequences in the original
commit may be copied to the output.
Perform a tab expansion (replace each tab with enough spaces
to fill to the next display column that is multiple of '<n>')
in the log message before showing it in the output.
`--expand-tabs` is a short-hand for `--expand-tabs=8`, and
`--no-expand-tabs` is a short-hand for `--expand-tabs=0`,
which disables tab expansion.
By default, tabs are expanded in pretty formats that indent the log
message by 4 spaces (i.e. 'medium', which is the default, 'full',
and 'fuller').
Show the notes (see linkgit:git-notes[1]) that annotate the
commit, when showing the commit log message. This is the default
for `git log`, `git show` and `git whatchanged` commands when
there is no `--pretty`, `--format`, or `--oneline` option given
on the command line.
By default, the notes shown are from the notes refs listed in the
`core.notesRef` and `notes.displayRef` variables (or corresponding
environment overrides). See linkgit:git-config[1] for more details.
With an optional '<ref>' argument, use the ref to find the notes
to display. The ref can specify the full refname when it begins
with `refs/notes/`; when it begins with `notes/`, `refs/` and otherwise
`refs/notes/` is prefixed to form a full name of the ref.
Multiple --notes options can be combined to control which notes are
being displayed. Examples: "--notes=foo" will show only notes from
"refs/notes/foo"; "--notes=foo --notes" will show both notes from
"refs/notes/foo" and from the default notes ref(s).
Do not show notes. This negates the above `--notes` option, by
resetting the list of notes refs from which notes are shown.
Options are parsed in the order given on the command line, so e.g.
"--notes --notes=foo --no-notes --notes=bar" will only show notes
from "refs/notes/bar".
These options are deprecated. Use the above --notes/--no-notes
options instead.
Check the validity of a signed commit object by passing the signature
to `gpg --verify` and show the output.
