(TIL) Git: List Filenames Without The Diffs

less than 1 minute read

The git show command will list all changes for a given reference including the diffs. With diffs included, this can get rather verbose at times. If you just want to see the list of files involved (excluding the diffs), you can use the --name-only flag. For instance,

$ git show HEAD --name-only
