git-diff-grep is now deprecated.
git log -S<query> to search in the history for commits that changed . Add an optional
-p to see the diff as well.
This tool will run grep in the last n commit diffs that you specify. Don't like grep? It's easy to change according to your needs.
If you ever:
- Wanted to see when a method was introduced.
- Wanted to see if that method that apparently is no longer needed was deleted by someone in the past.
- Simply wanted a tool to grep in your git diffs..
This tool is for you.
git-diff-grep -c 10 login_required will grep for login_required in the last 10 commits diffs.
Put it somewhere in your path, and you're good to go.
git-diff-grep [OPTIONS] <query>
Options: -c to specify the number of commits
- Paginate output automatically.
MIT. Do. Whatever. You. Want.
