If you are using git, you should be branching a lot (it’s encouraged when you use git). If you have lots of branches (more than two:), you might get a bit lost when it comes to determining the relation between branches. To ease the pain of the user, git has the git-log command. I found a great thread here that talks about cool stuff that you can do with the command.
In general, the following command will give you good info:
git log --graph --full-history --color --oneline
The previous command will list all the branches you are tracking in the local machine. If you want to see these and the branches that are in the remotes you should use the “–all” argument. If you so desire, you could also use the “–prety=<format>” argument to fully customize your searches. :)
