[git] How to list all the files in a commit?


If you want to get list of changed files:

git diff-tree --no-commit-id --name-only -r <commit-ish>

If you want to get list of all files in a commit, you can use

git ls-tree --name-only -r <commit-ish>

I am looking for a simple git command that provides a nicely formatted list of all files that were part of the commit given by a hash (SHA1), with no extraneous information.

I have tried:

git show a303aa90779efdd2f6b9d90693e2cbbbe4613c1d

Although it lists the files, it also includes unwanted diff information for each.

Is there another git command that will provide just the list I want, so that I can avoid parsing it from the git show output?

There's also git whatchanged, which is more low level than git log

       git-whatchanged - Show logs with difference each commit introduces

It outputs the commit summary with a list of files beneath it with their modes and if there added(A), deleted(D) or modified(M);

$ git whatchanged f31a441398fb7834fde24c5b0c2974182a431363

Would give something like:

commit f31a441398fb7834fde24c5b0c2974182a431363
Author: xx <xx@xx.nl>
Date:   Tue Sep 29 17:23:22 2015 +0200

I know this answer doesn't really match "with no extraneous information.", but I still think this list is more useful then just the filenames.

You can also do

git log --name-only

and you can browse through various commits, commit messages and the changed files.

Type q to get your prompt back.

A combination of "git show --stat" (thanks Ryan) and a couple of sed commands should trim the data down for you:

git show --stat <SHA1> | sed -n "/ [\w]\*|/p" | sed "s/|.\*$//"

That will produce just the list of modified files.

Found a perfect answer to this:

git show --name-status --oneline <commit-hash>

So that I can know

which files were just modified M

Which files were newly added , A

Which files were deleted , D

Simplest form:

git show --stat (hash)

That's easier to remember and it will give you all the information you need.

If you really want only the names of the files you could add the --name-only option.

git show --stat --name-only (hash)

$ git log 88ee8^..88ee8 --name-only --pretty="format:"

I like to use

git show --stat <SHA1>^..<SHA2>

I personally use the combination of --stat and --oneline with the show command:

git show --stat --oneline HEAD
git show --stat --oneline b24f5fb
git show --stat --oneline HEAD^^..HEAD

If you do not like/want the addition/removal stats, you can replace --stat with --name-only

git show --name-only --oneline HEAD
git show --name-only --oneline b24f5fb
git show --name-only --oneline HEAD^^..HEAD

I thought I would share a summary of my alias.. also I find using 'zsh' great with git it chroma keys everything nicely and tells you want branch are in all of the time by changing the command prompt.

For those covering from SVN you will find this useful: (this is a combination of ideas from different threads, I only take credit of knowing how to use copy/paste)

git show --name-only commitCodeHere

List the files that changed in a commit:

git diff --name-only SHA1^ SHA1

This doesn't show log messages, extra newlines, or any other clutter. This works for any commit, not just the current one. Not sure why it hasn't quite been mentioned yet, so I'm adding it.
