git-summary man page

git-summary — Show repository summary


git-summary [--line] [<commitish>]


Shows a summary of the repository.



Summarize only the range of commits included in the <commitish>.

Summarize with lines other than commits. This actually just results in a call to git-line-summary(1). Any <commitish> is ignored when --line is specified. See git-line-summary(1) for more info.

$ git summary
