Show What Is In A Git Stash

Usually when I want to inspect anything in git, I’ll use git show with a specific ref. This can even be done with stash refs.

$ git stash list
stash@{0}: WIP on ...
stash@{1}: Some commit on ...

$ git show stash@{0}
# ...

The git-stash command has a built-in way of showing stashes that will save you from having to type out the somewhat awkward stash@{n} ref.

$ git stash show 1

This will show you the stash@{1} ref. You can also omit a number which will show you the latest stash (stash@{0}).

See man git-stash for more details.
