Schedule.Today (11/14): SourceTree and other Visual Tools.11/21: NO CLASS –Thanksgiving.Last Lecture (11/28. The external diff tool in SourceTree (windows version) is not working at all. When system default is used, it tries to run vim.exe (presumably for vimdiff?), but nothing happens, vim.exe will just keep using the CPU resource until it's forced to terminate. Any other 'out-of-the-box' tools I tried (kdiff3 and diffmerge) doesn't work as well. I am having an issue with source tree. I have a conflict in my merge, and tried to run kdiff3.

So how do we integrate KDiff3 with GIT?
How do they do it?
- Download and install KDiff3 from here.
- GIT needs to know that KDiff3 should be used as the preferred diff/merge tool. For this, we need to make a simple change in the .gitconfig file. This file can be found under your home directory.
It should look something like this
Add the following lines to the file
The path config property under the mergetool and difftool, should point to the installation path of KDiff3 tool on your machine. The updated .gitconfig file should look somewhat like this
NOTE: please use forward slash '/' as the path separator even on windows machines. Using back slash ' will not work!
The above config tells GIT to use the KDiff3 tool as the external diff/merge tool.
All set! Lights, Camera, Action!
Lets view the difftool in action.
GIT will ask your permission to launch KDiff3 for viewing the test1.txt.
Hitting enter will launch the KDiff3 again for viewing test2.txt
This command will launch the KDiff3 for each edited file, without any prompt!
To use KDiff as the merge tool use the following command
Hitting enter will launch the KDiff3 as the merge tool
