Often with Git, you’ll need to refer back to an earlier version of a project. Commits are stored chronologically in the repository and can be viewed with:

git log



From the terminal, log a list of your commits.

In the output, notice:

  • A 40-character code, called a SHA, that uniquely identifies the commit. This appears in orange text.
  • The commit author (you!)
  • The date and time of the commit
  • The commit message
