  First commitment

 

Sometimes, it's a tad easier to work witht the --oneline flag.

git log --oneline

 

Which will produce output like this:

bk19sl1 Third commit
8jfj20d Second commit
afba75a First commit

 

Or even better, you can fine tune the output.

git log --pretty=format:%h,%cn,%cd,%s --date=local

 

Which will produce output like this:

bk19sl1,John Doe,Wed May 31 14:51:14 2020,Third commit
8jfj20d,John Doe,Tue May 30 18:23:36 2020,Second commit
afba75a,John Doe,Mon May 29 20:26:09 2020,First commit
