First Commit on a Git Repo
I like to read commit logs.
Today I wanted to see the first commit on a project. Here's what I used:
$ git rev-list --max-parents=0 HEAD
Show me the commits that led to
HEADin reverse chronological order; then limit those results to the commits with no parent.
Here's a small modification, to show the entire commit rather than the SHA alone:
$ git show $(git rev-list --max-parents=0 HEAD)
