git log in chronological order?

Posted by walnuts 
Hi all.

Searched but couldn't find the answer, so I thought I'd check...

I am trying to get a "git log" output that would show me in reverse order of the check-in date. All I've tried has been fruitless.

When I go to the corresponding git location on the web, I can see the log in chronological order.
But, no matter what I tried using git log, I cannot get it to show up that way.

I am using: git log --pretty=format:'%Cgreen%ai [%h] %Cblue<%an> %Cred%s' --date-order

but I see (small snippit)

see how the dates and times are in like random order? any thoughts?

ah, figured it out. %ai shows you the author date, not the commit date. %cd is the committer date, so it is in chronological order, the --pretty is just displaying a different date than what I wanted.

Thanks - jc
