I found your answer useful for something else, if that is any consolation. If this is still an issue for you, please update to our latest version. Be careful what you wish for, though; merging a branch with a one-line change that was forked three months ago will still have a huge diff versus the mainline, and so such a full diff would be almost completely unhelpful. This also means that you're not limited to just editing the commit's message: you could also add another couple of changes you forgot. Correcting a commit message in Git can be very easy - if it's the very last commit you want to edit! In your instance you said you wanted the change-set.
If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may do so now or later by using -b with the checkout command again. Furthermore, it lists only files which were modified from all parents. And while Git users do not need worry about such details, Perforce users can continue to work with all the files with simple revision and changelist numbers, which addresses the aforementioned pain points quite nicely. Is there a way to force git to still show all differences in combined diff mode? I then deleted the original directory - but have managed to restore from a backup and had a look at it today. Below is information regarding the use of the git log command.
What platform are you running Git on? Not the answer you're looking for? If you notice your mistake only after adding another commit, amend won't help you much. It shows the differences from each of the parents to the merge result simultaneously instead of showing pairwise diff between a parent and the result one at a time which is what the -m option does. How to change your Git username You can change your Git username like this: git config --global user. But it would certainly be nice sometimes, and it would probably be relatively easy to implement in the git source code after all, you just have to tell it to not trim out what it thinks is extraneous output , so the patch to do so would probably be accepted by the git maintainers. Use --no-exclude to clear and reset the list of patterns. Did you already have the branch history visible in Visual Studio before doing the interactive rebase from the command line? To set it up: git config --global alias.
For each commit-ish supplied, git describe will first look for a tag which tags exactly that commit. No, there is no way to do this with git show. Looking at Team Explorer for the Commit Details I wasn't seeing some of the changes. You should definitely understand what you're doing before applying it! You can use the diff-tree command with the -c flag. Is there a graphical application that can help me out here? The mode of action, however, is the same as with the --amend flag: you are rewriting history! Thank you for helping us build a better Visual Studio! Sadly it's not a public repo and I can't share it with you privately.
This command shows you what files have changed in the merge commit. Annotated tags will always be preferred over lightweight tags, and tags with newer dates will always be preferred over tags with older dates. Made a typo in your commit message? Provide details and share your research! By any chance, is this a public repo or would you be able to share it privately? Chad That command reports back the same number of files as the one I used. But if you don't want the diff in your output you can always do something like: git log -1 -U c That will give you the commit log, and then you'll have full control over all the git logging options for your automation purposes. If an exact match is found, its name will be output and searching will stop.
Still worse can be the extra effort of integrating Git with other development tools that expect revisions, builds, etc. The command finds the most recent tag that is reachable from a commit. See the man pages for for details about the command and about the ~ notation and its friends. Does such a glorious thing exist? When committing changes, Git responds with the name of the current branch, a string of numbers and letters, and the commit message. This option enables matching a lightweight non-annotated tag. For a list of changed files, you can use: git diff fc17405.
Or forgot to mention an important detail in the message? After this git difftool 7f65b9a9d3820525766fcba285b3c678e889fe3b c3a61f17e14e2b80cf64b172a45f1b4826ee291f. If given multiple times, a list of patterns will be accumulated and tags matching any of the patterns will be excluded. Browse other questions tagged or. The command you provided shows information about the commit and the types of changes that were made to the file. I have to manually git diff to see the changes. This is the version with and tags, but without. I thought I would share a summary of my alias.
If the tag points to the commit, then only the tag is shown. First of all we will checkout the previous version. You can look around, make experimental changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout. An of 0 will suppress long format, only showing the closest tag. The following are all commit-ishes: a commit object, a that points to a commit object, a tag object that points to a tag object that points to a commit object, etc. If an exact match was not found, git describe will walk back through the commit history to locate an ancestor commit which has been tagged.
As part of my work I regularly commit to git. You can also have a different username on a per-project basis. I doubt that you would intentionally create an empty commit, so another possibility is that you somehow have pre-commit line-ending conversion on or other funny whitespace stuff that is tricking Git into thinking that no changes have actually been made. If you are still able to repro it, please provide us with more info! Hi Alastair, I have a few questions in order to help me try to reproduce this behavior. Happily, using Git with the Perforce platform can solve this issue.
