I have several branches in my local git repository, I wanted a visual representation of the git branch nesting structure. Is there a way to do this?

The ‘git log’ command is your closest option to view the local branches in a tree like structure.

Use the following command, it will arrange the commits in a hierarchical manner.

git log --graph --simplify-by-decoration --pretty=format:'%d' --all

However, if you’re more specific about the look of your branching workflow rather than the commits, use the following command.

git log --decorate --all --graph --simplify-by-decoration --topo-order --date=short --format='%h [%cd]%d %s'
