Git Question

is it possible to `git status` only modified files?

Is it possible to

git status
and show only modified files?

The problem is i have too many staged files that i don't want to commit or gitignore at the moment and i can't scroll up. I have a scrollback limit set on Ubuntu.

Answer

You can't do this with git status, but you could use git ls-files -m to show all modified files.
