In Git, it is a good idea to commit often. When I complete a whole feature, however, I find it useful to get a list of all the files that have changed since I started the feature. This gives me the opportunity to do a visual review of each file, make sure all code comments are up-to-date, etc.
At the moment, I do this manually. I take a physical copy of the project folder before I start the feature, then use Beyond Compare when I finish the feature, so I can see absolutely everything that has changed.
I thought stashing might help me do this, but it does not cope with untracked files, which seems to give it limited value to me.
Ideally, what I would like to do is select two lines in the Log/History and get a list of everything that has changed, including files added and deleted. Is there any way to do this?
It seems plain wrong that I am having to resort to a physical file copy when I am using a source control system.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
Kind wishes ~ Patrick
