With the latest git (2.9.0) you can now apparently setup diffs which weren’t possible before.
I use so-fancy/diff-so-fancy to get diffs
- Without the
-at the beginning of each line
- Clear headers between different files in a diff
- Clean headers describing where the file the diff is
- Highlights of what changed on that line
And with the latest version of git the diff engine is smarter with blocks so it won’t think you inserted a new if/for in the middle of an existing one.
brew update brew install git # 2.9.0+ brew install diff-so-fancy git config --global core.pager "diff-so-fancy | less --tabs=4 -RFX"
