In git I run this command to show recently used branches:

git for-each-ref --sort=-committerdate --count=10 refs/heads

How do I do this in magit?


This currently isn't possible in Magit. If you open a feature request, then I will consider adding such a feature, but I cannot promise that we will do so or even that we will do so soon.


Nowadays there is the option magit-list-refs-sortby:

Any value accepted by the --sort' flag of git for-each-ref' can be used. For example, "-creatordate" places refs with more recent committer or tagger dates earlier in the list. A list of strings can also be given in order to pass multiple sort keys to `git for-each-ref'.
