    Use-v or –verbose option for git commit.

    To check for local differences:

    git diff myfile.txt
    

    or you can use a diff tool (in case you’d like to revert some changes):

    git difftool myfile.txt
    

    To use git difftool more efficiently, install and use your favourite GUI tool such as Meld, DiffMerge or OpenDiff.

    Note: You can also use . (instead of filename) to see current dir changes.

    In order to check changes per each line, use: git blamewhich will display which line was commited in which commit
