Git tip: commits of a long workday

Something descriptive

This is just a small tip for all git users out there. Usually, after a long workday, you want to briefly review the day before you leave the office. And who could tell you what you've done today better than git? It is a common practise to make small commits and commit often, which helps a lot in that case. With this config option (~/.gitconfig) you can simply run git today and get a nice and colorful list of the commits from today.. and than call it a day.

  today = log --color --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset' --after="yesterday" --abbrev-commit --

Update: It also includes commits that occured after yesterday. An improved variant for this kind of scenario would be the following:

  today = log --color --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset' --since="6am" --abbrev-commit --
