My favorite command line:

git log --graph --oneline

It will prints a text based graph like (with colors):

*   b5dc8b9 Merge branch 'master' of https://github.com/layerzero/libi0
|\  
| * 7514ef1 revised the README.md a little bit
| * 6692428 align size to page for both shalloc and shalloc_ext as default behavior
| * 892e097 add PAGE_SIZE macro to indicate page size; other macros should use this instead of define their own
| * de68119 shalloc: default behavior made to be standalone for each call to shalloc
* | 2d84c94 Add some output functions
|/  
* e27c0b1 bugfix: input_q respects - even it reaches EOF
* 4e45dc3 add libi0 and LICENSE

If you want the full commit hash code:

git log --graph --pretty=oneline

The output will be like:

*   b5dc8b9542aa5f6f52af826e857410c2f4db6028 Merge branch 'master' of https://github.com/layerzero/libi0

If you are okay with GUI tools, try the git repository browser gitk.
