[math][all] Archaeology pre-git

Phil Steitz
Now and then I want to go back and research how the code got to be
the way it is.  I used to be able to just jump into the old
svn-viewc thingy.  That is now blocked with a message that just says
"math is in git now."  That is great; but when I go back in the git
log, it always ends when whatever branch was created that I am
looking at.  How can I find the full history?

Have you tried using your IDE?

Which command you use? I can see the svn change log by command 'git log' on my local computer. See attachment screenshot.

It seems strange. I just did a "git checkout field-ode" and "git log"
and the list did go past the branch creation.

What I usually do for looking in large history with several branches
at once is "git log -30 --branches --oneline --decorate --graph",
of course any number of commits other than 30 can be used.

For any git command, like log, you can display its documentation
by adding a "--help" *after* the command name, as in "git log --help".

best regards,
Luc

It seems strange. I just did a "git checkout field-ode" and "git log"and the list did go past the branch creation.
What I usually do for looking in large history with several branchesat once is "git log -30 --branches --oneline --decorate --graph",of course any number of commits other than 30 can be used.

Not that I ever use it, but I have this alias in my .gitconfig to do in the terminal what GUI's like gitk and SourceTree (which I personally adore, though GitUp is more powerful in sometimes-important ways) do:
lol = "log --graph --decorate --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit --all"
You can append the number-of-commits argument (e.g., -30) to it.
Its output is indistinguishable from that of Luc's command above in the repo that I tested them with.  You can obviously use the command without defining it as an alias:
git log --graph --decorate --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit --all

For any git command, like log, you can display its documentationby adding a "--help" *after* the command name, as in "git log --help".

Or do "git help log".

best regards,Luc

Thanks, all.  I was not correctly using the commands or the web
GUI.  Everything works fine.  Sorry for the noise.

Since you have the entire repository downloaded, you don't need the web
GUI.  That's one of the wonderful things about git (and one of the biggest
pains if someone checks in some huge files).  You can just use tools on
your local machine to do the investigation.

I realise that other solutions have been posted, but for completeness
it might be useful to note that ViewVC can still be used for the SVN
history if necessary:
