Command-line tool to pretty-print and filter the APT log
Filter log entries by installations made by user 'ichy'.
apt-history -u ichy -A Install
Filter log entries by removals affecting the package 'firefox:amd64'
apt-history -A Remove -p firefox:amd64
apt-history paginates using less(1) or more(1), but this can be
disabled with the
-P flag. In this example, only log entries made by the
current user will be displayed.
Thanks to the
-r flag, the output is reversed, meaning that the newest
entries show last.
apt-history -r -u $USER -P
You might prefer your packages to be listed out in a wrapped way, more like
you'd see in the '/var/log/apt/history.log' file, without all of the version
-c flag, this example will include the actual command executed.
apt-history -D Wrapped -c
