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?
Preferred Way (because it’s a plumbing command; meant to be programmatic):
Another Way (less preferred for scripts, because it’s a porcelain command; meant to be user-facing)
--no-commit-idsuppresses the commit ID output.
--prettyargument specifies an empty format string to avoid the cruft at the beginning.
--name-onlyargument shows only the file names that were affected (Thanks Hank). Use
--name-statusinstead, if you want to see what happened to each file (Deleted, Modified, Added)
-rargument is to recurse into sub-trees
