2010-01-21Fix "log --oneline" not to show notesJunio C Hamano
This option should be treated pretty much the same as --format="%h %s". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2010-01-21Fix "log" family not to be too agressive about showing notesJunio C Hamano
Giving "Notes" information in the default output format of "log" and "show" is a sensible progress (the user has asked for it by having the notes), but for some commands (e.g. "format-patch") spewing notes into the formatted commit log message without being asked is too aggressive. Enable notes output only for "log", "show", "whatchanged" by default and only when the user didn't ask any specific --pretty/--format from the command line; users can explicitly override this default with --show-notes and --no-notes option. Parts of tests are taken from Jeff King's fix. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <peff@peff.net> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2009-02-25Add --oneline that is a synonym to "--pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit"Nanako Shiraishi
These two are often used together but are too long to type. Signed-off-by: Nanako Shiraishi <nanako3@lavabit.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2009-02-25Add --format that is a synonym to --prettyNanako Shiraishi
Some people prefer to call the pretty-print styles "format", and get annoyed to see "git log --format=short" fail. Introduce it as a synonym to --pretty so that both can be used. Signed-off-by: Nanako Shiraishi <nanako3@lavabit.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2008-03-05log/show/whatchanged: introduce format.pretty configurationDenis Cheng
When running log/show/whatchanged from the command line, the user may want to use a preferred format without having to pass --pretty=<fmt> option every time from the command line. This teaches these three commands to honor a new configuration variable, format.pretty. The --pretty option given from the command line will override the configured format. The earlier patch fixed the in-tree callers that run these commands for purposes other than showing the output directly to the end user (the only other in-tree caller is "git bisect visualize", whose output directly goes to the end user and should be affected by this patch). Similar fixes will be needed for end-user scripts that parse the output from these commands and expect them to be in the default pretty format.

2007-06-16Document git log --abbrev-commit, as a kind of pretty optionJakub Narebski
Documentation taken from paraphrased description of "--abbrev[=<n>]" diff option, and from description of commit 5c51c985 introducing this option. Note that to change number of digits one must use "--abbrev=<n>", which affects [also] diff output. Signed-off-by: Jakub Narebski <jnareb@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2007-06-07War on whitespaceJunio C Hamano
This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time. There are a few files that need to have trailing whitespaces (most notably, test vectors). The results still passes the test, and build result in Documentation/ area is unchanged.

2007-05-14Documentation: Split description of pretty formats of commit logJakub Narebski
Split description of pretty formats into list of pretty options (--pretty and --encoding) in new file Documentation/pretty-options.txt and description of formats itself as a separate "PRETTY FORMATS" section in pretty-formats.txt While at it correct formatting a bit, to be better laid out in the resulting manpages: git-rev-list(1), git-show(1), git-log(1) and git-diff-tree(1). Those manpages now include pretty options in the same place as it was before, and description of formats just after all options.
