How to search for commits where a file of a particular type was added?

How do I search for all commits where an html file was added? I have a static  website under source control and I'd like to see a record of what pages I added to the site and when.

Unfortunately, you can't search commits by filename in SourceTree. However, you should be able to do it by Git command line using:

 git log --follow filename


Thanks Renato. What I meant was something that tells me all files and when they were committed, so it would return something like:

a.html first committed on 1 Jan 2017
b.html first committed on 12 Jan 2017
c.html first committed on 23 Dec 2016

Is there a git command that does something like that?
