Using the command ll in magit would get the complete commit history, but how can one show only the commits by an individual developer?

I checked the cheetsheet but can't find a valid solution.

  • After l (for logging) did you try pressing =a (limit to author option)?

Look at the arguments available in the logging popup (l). One of them is --author, described as "Limit to author". Sounds like that's what you want.

Are you talking about the cheatsheet by Daemian Mack? If so then have a look at the top of that page and notice that it sais "THIS CHEATSHEET IS OBSOLETE AS OF MAGIT V2". Below that you will also find links to more up-to-date documentation.
