Checking the Status of a Git Repository

The git status command is used within a Git repository to its current status including the current commit, any modified files, and any new files not being tracked by Git.

The output of git status can vary widely, and it often includes helpful messages to direct the user to manage their repository. For example, git status will show the user the files they would commit by running git commit and the files they could commit by running git add before running git commit.
