I'd like to find commits touching specified path in a magit-log buffer. Gitk has this as a filter "touching paths".
Is there a way to do this in Magit?
I usually run
gitk --all or
gitk mybranch otherbranch when I need to find something in a repo; ie) while debugging and looking for some clue. Anyway, after I run
gitk I decide to filter, say, by a directory. So, I insert the name of the directory in the filter text box, and select "touching paths" to highlight the commits touching the path.
Because a successive commit not touching the path often time gives me a hint, I don't want to hide the commits by the filter. Even without hiding, I can easily jump from a commit to another commit by "↓" or "↑".
