Git Question

Show git pull graph in other situations

After

git pull
, a really nice summary graphic (e.g. below) is produced showing what files have changes and roughly how much. Is there a way to produce this graphic for a general comparison (i.e. between tags, or commits)?

enter image description here

Answer

I believe what you are looking for is:

git diff --stat SHA1 SHA2

this will display exactly the same thing as git pull. You have to specify the commmits you want to compare.

You can also use all other means of specifing other commits, such as:

git diff --stat HEAD^ HEAD

Or compare branches:

git diff --stat master develop
