Compare branches in git

Want to check if all changes in your new branch is merged to main branch before you delete the new branch.

git log feature1 ^master

The above command displays all commits which are present in feature1 and not present in master.

Note 1: You can also try “git branch -d feature1″. If the new branch is not totally merged, git won’t delete the new branch.

Note 2: You can also try “git branch –contains feature1″, but I’m not sure how that works. I guess I’m happy with git log for now.
