Display a file from another branch

・1 min read

Ever wanted to see a file from a different branch? Well, no need to stash && checkout, just use git show.

dev $ git show master:path/to/file

PS: this works with any reference (not sure if that's the right term, correct me if I'm wrong), like commit and tags:

master $ git log --oneline
d529def Some more new stuff
4598db3 Some new stuff
e8dd680 init
master $ git show e8dd680:path/to/file
<The content of the file at commit e8dd680>

Enjoy!
