git notes main page | gitolite main page | license

IMPORTANT NOTE: although this page has a "" URL, this is not about gitolite. That's just an artifact of "" being translated to "" and so ALL my git related stuff gets carried over. Gitolite documentation has another /gitolite in the URL, so you can tell. My apologies for this confusion.

what the heck is a reflog and why is it so important?

1 what is it

2 how do I visualise it

3 why would I need it

4 cool tricks

Here’s a neat tool that shows you reflog output but using gitk – the graphical viewer. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it :-)
