Use Gitk To Find Content Of Commit Message

usecase

The concern is documenting currently the fastest way to look for the commit and its content based on the search of commit message — using gitk

1. brainstorm

content of the commit message is what interests me here, mainly when there is a naming convention to commiting (some logic, well convention I would say) and I need to find the latest change done — this is all done within IaC when changing the config of EMR cluster or SQL job runner,…

2. steps

  • navigate to the repository

3. footnotes

  • gitk is written in (for me newly discovered) Tcl/Tk

4. gitk-vs-git gui

  • not much xp, but seems that
