Discussion on: Nice looking Git log

Nice, thanks. I did have a glg alias for this same log but I lost it in a recent resetup after my cygwin setup died on me.
Now I'm switching to WSL.
I spent a good amount of last night/early this morning trying to get a log view I was happy with. The best I could get was git log --graph --pretty --oneline but it lacks the author, date (relative) and tags. Yours looks like it has all but tags, but I think I saw that option last night while tab-exploring options ..
But would you mind explaining the black magic that is the pretty formatting syntax? I understand some of it...
