Hi, terminal folks!
There is the word diff feature in git.
Let's activate it now!
First, my git version is this.
$ git version git version 2.21.0
It is essential to make a diff-highlight binary file.
Then move it to executable path or create a symbolic link for same purpose.
However, initial state of the binary is different depends on each linuxs.
there are 3 patterns as far as I know.
- a binary exists with an executable permission
- a binary exists with a not-executable permission
- there is a make file instead of a binary
I write just for option#3. If your initial state is #1 or #2, please make sure it works by reading below. I guess you can do it.
cd /usr/share/doc/git/contrib/diff-highlight/ sudo make sudo ln -s /usr/share/doc/git/contrib/diff-highlight/diff-highlight /usr/local/bin/diff-highlight sudo chmod +x /usr/share/doc/git/contrib/diff-highlight/diff-highlight
At last, edit your
[core] pager = diff-highlight | less -r
