git-shortlog — Summarize 'git log' output
View a summary of all the commits made, grouped alphabetically by author name:
View a summary of all the commits made, sorted by the number of commits made:
git shortlog -n
View a summary of all the commits made, grouped by the commiter identities (name and email):
git shortlog -c
View a summary of the last 5 commits (i.e. specify a revision range):
git shortlog HEAD~5..HEAD
View all users, emails and the number of commits in the current branch:
git shortlog -sne
View all users, emails and the number of commits in all branches:
git shortlog -sne --all
git shortlog [<options>] [<revision range>] [[--] <path>...] git log --pretty=short | git shortlog [<options>]
Summarizes git log output in a format suitable for inclusion in release announcements. Each commit will be grouped by author and title.
Additionally, "[PATCH]" will be stripped from the commit description.
If no revisions are passed on the command line and either standard input is not a terminal or there is no current branch, git shortlog will output a summary of the log read from standard input, without reference to the current repository.
- -n, --numbered
Sort output according to the number of commits per author instead of author alphabetic order.
- -s, --summary
Suppress commit description and provide a commit count summary only.
- -e, --email
Show the email address of each author.
Instead of the commit subject, use some other information to describe each commit. <format> can be any string accepted by the --format option of git log, such as * [%h] %s. (See the "PRETTY FORMATS" section of git-log(1).)
Each pretty-printed commit will be rewrapped before it is shown.
- -c, --committer
Collect and show committer identities instead of authors.
Linewrap the output by wrapping each line at width. The first line of each entry is indented by indent1 spaces, and the second and subsequent lines are indented by indent2 spaces. width, indent1, and indent2 default to 76, 6 and 9 respectively.
If width is 0 (zero) then indent the lines of the output without wrapping them.
- <revision range>
Show only commits in the specified revision range. When no <revision range> is specified, it defaults to HEAD (i.e. the whole history leading to the current commit). origin..HEAD specifies all the commits reachable from the current commit (i.e. HEAD), but not from origin. For a complete list of ways to spell <revision range>, see the "Specifying Ranges" section of gitrevisions(7).
- [--] <path>...
Consider only commits that are enough to explain how the files that match the specified paths came to be.
Paths may need to be prefixed with -- to separate them from options or the revision range, when confusion arises.
