    The ultimate format of the log
    Retrieved from
    $ git log --pretty=format:"%h %ad | %s%d [%an]" --graph --date=short
    Let’s look at it in detail:

        --pretty="..." defines the output format.
        %h is the abbreviated hash of the commit
        %d commit decorations (e.g. branch heads or tags)
        %ad is the commit date
        %s is the comment
        %an is the name of the author
        --graph tells git to display the commit tree in the form of an ASCII graph layout
        --date=short keeps the date format short and nice
