List all Modified File Names with Git

Sometimes we need to pull up data from specific time span. Suppose, we need to see all the changed files prior to a deployment. Well, its possible with source control. Git has some commands that can help you with that. Here are some of those..

Git Branch
_This command lists every single modified file names from specific date to now..
$ git whatchanged --since '12/01/2016' --oneline --name-only --pretty=format: | sort | uniq
_This command lists modified file names from prior days..
