Lightweight tag

These are the simplest way to add a tag to your git repository because they store only the hash of the commit they refer to. They are created with the absence of the -a, -s, or -m options and do not contain any extra information. lets start to create one lightweight tag. For creating tag just run below command.

$ git tag Dev

Annotated tag

Annotated tags store extra metadata such as author name, release notes, tag-message, and date as full objects in the Git database.

$ git tag -a Prod -m "Iam Annotated tag"
