How to Find Git Commit ID?

To find a git commit id (or hash), you can simply use the git log command. This would show you the commit history, listing the commits in chronological order, with the latest commit first. The result for it would look something like the following:

commit 3ba53ff050ef253058088eff5

The commit id is the (unique SHA-1) string that appears right after the word "commit".
