List entire branch content

~/my/repo $ git ls-tree mybranch -r --name-only
.gitignore
LICENSE
README.md
cli.js
demo.gif
index.html
live-svg.svg
package.json
server.js
tests/cli.js
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

List only one folder's content

You don't need grep!

~/my/repo $ git ls-tree mybranch:test -r --name-only
tests/cli.js
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

More informations about git ls-tree.

Hope it'll save you some time! 😜

Does it work for remote branches?
