Git difftool

·75 words·1 min

To use your favourite visuall diff-tool with git:

git difftool -t xxdiff HEAD

Or ‘HEAD’ can be any particular file you want to diff.

git difftool

shows a list of programs it can use… if you happen to have them installed.

There is a thread on stackoverflow that details a few more advanced options, including setting up your own difftool, but I like this one the best, due to its simplicity.
