Git status command

The git status command in Git provides a snapshot of the current state of the working directory and the staging area. It offers valuable information about changes in the repository, indicating which files have been modified, which changes have been staged for the next commit, and which files are untracked. By using git status, users can assess the status of their project, make informed decisions about which changes to commit, and identify files that are yet to be tracked or committed.
