How to compare branches in GitHub?


I'm looking for ways to compare multiple git branches.

In order to compare two branches easily, you have to use the “git diff” command and provide the branch names separated by dots.

$ git diff branch1..branch2

Using this command, Git will compare the tip of both branches (also called the HEAD) and display a “diff” recap that you can use to see modifications. In short, it will show you all the commits that “branch2” has that are not in “branch1”
