(TIL) Git: Show The diffstat Summary Of A Commit

less than 1 minute read

Use the --stat flag when running git show on a commit to see the diffstat summary of that commit. For instance, this is what I get for a recent commit to delve:

$ git show 8a1f36a1ce --stat
commit 8a1f36a1ce71d708d1d82afbc2191de9aefba021
Author: Derek Parker <derek.parker@coreos.com>
Date:   Wed Jan 27 23:47:04 2016 -0800

    dlv: Flag to print stacktrace on trace subcommand

 cmd/dlv/main.go     | 45 ++++++++++-----------------------------------
 terminal/command.go |  7 +++++--
 2 files changed, 15 insertions(+), 37 deletions(-)

The following is a description of the diffstat program

This program reads the output of diff and displays a histogram of the insertions, deletions, and modifications per-file.

See man git-show and man diffstat for more details.
