Useful git alias

I found this on Hacker News and I love it.  Since I used this blog as my project notebook, I thought I should perhaps document it here (lest I forget where I got it later).

Here’s the alias:

git config –global alias.lg “log –color –graph –pretty=format:’%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset’ –abbrev-commit”
