Display condensed log in a tree-like format.
This should work even if the output format changes.
List everyone who committed to a particular project, listed alphabetically. To list by commits, add -n to the shortlog.
You'll run into trouble if you have files w/ missing newlines at the end. I tried to use
PAGER='sed \$q' git blame
PAGER='sed \$q' git -p blame
to force a newline at the end, but as soon as the output is redirected, git seems to ignore the pager.
Figures out total line contribution per author for an entire GIT repo. Includes binary files, which kind of mess up the true count.
If crashes or takes too long, mess with the ls-file option at the start:
git ls-files -x "*pdf" -x "*psd" -x "*tif" to remove really random binary files
git ls-files "*.py" "*.html" "*.css" to only include specific file types

I sometimes (due to mismanagement!) end up with files in a git repo which have had their modes changed, but not their content. This one-liner lets me revert the mode changes, while leaving changed-content files be, so I can commit just the actual changes made.
It deletes all removed files, updates what was modified, and adds new files.
Only shows files with actual changes to text (excluding whitespace). Useful if you've messed up permissions or transferred in files from windows or something like that, so that you can get a list of changed files, and clean up the rest.
Lists ONLY the files changed by the given HASH/HEAD/list of hashes, etc. The message, commit ID, author, etc. is not included
I've used technicalpickles command a lot, but this one handles whitespaces in filenames. I'm sure you want to create an alias for it :)
Print out list of all branches with last commit date to the branch, including relative time since commit and color coding.
It's pretty common to forgot to commit a files, be it a modification, or a brand new file.
If you did forget something, git add the files you want, and then git commit --amend. It will essentially redo the last commit, with the changes you just added. It seeds the commit message with the last commit message by default.
You probably shouldn't do this if you've already pushed the commit.
This command handles git rm'ing files that you've deleted.
