Git Internals

Content of .git folder

Git stores snapshots (exact content of the files) at the point of a commit.

ls .git

The content is stored in the objects sub-directory. There are 4 kinds of objects:

blob
used for storing the contents of a single file
tree
contains references to other blobs or subtrees
commit
contains reference to another tree object and some other information (author, committer etc.)
tag
Another reference to a commit object
