5.3.6 Cherries

Cherries are commits that haven’t been applied upstream (yet), and are usually visualized using a log. Each commit is prefixed with - if it has an equivalent in the upstream and + if it does not, i.e. if it is a cherry.

The command magit-cherry shows cherries for a single branch, but the references buffer (see References Buffer) can show cherries for multiple "upstreams" at once.

Also see the git-reflog(1) manpage.

Y (magit-cherry)

Show commits that are in a certain branch but that have not been merged in the upstream branch.

User Option: magit-cherry-margin

This option specifies whether the margin is initially shown in Magit-Cherry mode buffers and how it is formatted.

The value has the form (INIT STYLE WIDTH AUTHOR AUTHOR-WIDTH).
