How to generate a patch with edited files? How to zip latest committed changes only

zip archive.zip $(git diff-tree --no-commit-id --name-only -r latest-commit-id)

sometimes you need all the files that were updated so you can patch an external app which doesnt uses same git project or many other scenarios in which we need a zip or tar of those files. Use the above command to do so

There is a smarter way also, if you want all the changes from last 5 commits, use the command like this:

zip archive.zip $(git diff-tree --no-commit-id --name-only -r HEAD~5 HEAD)
