How to include the date in git reflog output

By default, the output of git reflog doesn’t include the date when the reference was updated. But git reflog [show] is an alias of git log --walk-reflogs --oneline and so accepts any of the options of git log. This means the date can be included by using the --format option.

Here’s a fancy version:

$ git reflog --format="%C(yellow)%h%C(reset) %gs %C(green)%ad%C(reset) %C(blue)[%ar]%C(reset)"

which looks like:
