261-character git one-liner of the day

Paul Bissex
I wanted to have a quick way to see what the other team members are doing, and after pillaging a half-dozen SO posts this is what I came up with. git branch -va --sort=-committerdate --format='%(HEAD) %(color:yellow)%(refname:strip=-1)%(color:reset) - %(color:red)%(objectname:short)%(color:reset) - %(contents:subject) - %(authorname) (%(color:green)%(committerdate:relative)%(color:reset))' --color=always I added it to my git aliases as recent-commits. Sample output: AC-6929 - e0c57582a - Added sorting to event list - Pat (2 hours ago) AC-7054 - 0a9c84222 - Updated 'No mentor selected' option - Sam (5 hours ago)
