Sometimes I would like to watch the history of my Git commits as well as the branches. What’s more, I would like to see these changes in terminal so that I don’t need to install then execute other programs.

As a Git user, I can watch the Git commits by typing git log. However, sometimes I want to watch the branch graph so that I can know which branch merges to another branch.

As such, you can type this command:

$ git log --all --decorate --oneline --graph

And this stackoverflow answer [^1] provides an interesting rhythm – A DOG – and a meme to memorize it:

This delighted dog with rainbow background will help you to memorize A DOG command :)

Thanks you stackoverflow, you save me the day!
