Git log output log file

I am doing an assignment in a university course and I am using git as version control for this assignment. The game I have been working on is complete, however, along with the hand in I would like to submit the git log, effectively showing my progress during the time I have been working on it.

I have tried this:

  • How to use opendiff as default mergetool
  • “Hiding” things in GIT
  • How to change the main branch in BitBucket?
  • Git - How to use .netrc file on windows to save user and password
  • Git Variables in Jenkins Workflow plugin
  • Compare a GIT bare repo and bitbucket repo
  • git log --stat > log.log
    

    But it more or less just gives me very unreadable stuff. Can anyone help me with a command so that I can get a nice formatting on this?

  • How can I fetch git objects using the smart protocol (raw) over http?
  • Does Git Bash determine identify by ssh key?
  • Pull updates with git after cloned with --depth 1
  • How can I delete a git alias?
  • p4merge error
  • Remote Symfony2 + Netbeans workflow (feat. git)
  • 3 Solutions collect form web for “Git log output log file”

    I would recommend using a different format than the default. My usual choice is summary with the graph, but one line summary alone usually does the trick.

    Option 1: One line summary w/ Graph

    git log --pretty=format:'%h : %s' --graph > log.log
    

    Results in:

    * 2d3acf9 : ignore errors from SIGCHLD on trap
    *   5e3ee11 : Merge branch 'master' of git://github.com/dustin/grit
    |\  
    | * 420eac9 : Added a method for getting the current branch.
    * | 30e367c : timeout code and tests
    * | 5a09431 : add timeout protection to grit
    * | e1193f8 : support for heads with slashes in them
    |/  
    * d6016bc : require time for xmlschema
    

    Option 2: One line summary w/o Graph

    git log --pretty=format:'%h was %an, %ar, message: %s' > log.log
    

    Results in:

    You can find more formatting options in the docs here

    Try this line
