3 pane merge vs 2 pane merge in meld

In git when I have a conflict, I’ve been either using ‘git mergetool’ which then indirectly brings up meld with a 3 pane interface, or I’ve also brought up meld directly by using ‘meld <path to file with conflict>’. When I use the latter method, it brings up meld with only 2 panes. I prefer […]

How does git mergetool work to resolve conflicts?

So once I notice that I have conflicts when pulling, I’ll run git mergetool which I have setup to run with Meld. However, once you hit save, does git automatically consider those conflicts resolved so you then just have to commit and push again? I’m quite confused on git considers resolved. Sorry if this a […]

How do I configure TortoiseGit to use Meld for diff, merge and conflicts?

I have tried a naive configuration to replace the native TortoiseGit viewers with Meld for Windows for diff, merge and conflict actions. What additional parameters do I need to pass in to Meld for these functions?

How to get back the old git diff interface?

I changed my git diff-tool to meld. This works great, but I would like some way to generate the old-style git diff (a short piece of text indicating only the relevant lines) to email a change I made to someone. How do I go back to the old git diff tool?
