Git Diff for files


You can find the differences between files by using git diff:

git diff commit1 commit2

This will list all the differences, which could be a long list of changes.

If you’re looking for just the file names, you can use the –name-only flag:

git diff --name-only commit1 commit2

You can see which files have changed in the last couple of commits with:

git diff --name-only HEAD~2
