Git with KDiff3 – Windows

Hey all,

Just a quick post showing the config I needed to use in order to get KDiff3 working with git. It took a while to get this working so hopefully it’ll be able to help someone else out.

#Config file
	email =
	name = test
	editor = "C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 2\sublime_text.exe"
    whitespace = fix

    branch = auto
    diff = auto
    interactive = auto
    status = auto

        pager = less -FRSX
        whitespace = cr-at-eol
        autocrlf = input
        excludesfile = /Users/test/.gitignore_global
        editor = mate -w

        co = checkout
        lg = log --graph --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit

	recentrepo = Y:/Projects/Junk
	recentrepo = C:/xampp/htdocs/onlinemedia
	tool = kdiff3
