The git status command displays information about the current status of the working directory and staging area in your Git repository. It tells you which files are currently being tracked, which changes have been staged, and which changes still need to be staged.

Let’s say you’re working on a new feature for your website and you’ve made some changes to your code. You can use git status command to see which files have been edited on your local copy:

$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

Changes not staged for commit:
  (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
  (use "git checkout --<file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
        modified:   index.html

no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

In this example, Git is reporting that the index.html file has been modified but not yet staged. This means that Git is aware of the changes you have made, but they have not yet been added to the next commit.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
