Git Diff

When working with version control, sometimes you would like to know what files were committed locally vs what’s on the master origin repository. One way to know the difference is to use the git diff or the git log commands. Here are the commands to check the differences between the local and master origin repositories. Diff is better in my opinion since it actually displays the code changes instead of just displaying the commit ID.

$ git diff origin/master..HEAD
$ git log origin/master..HEAD
