Is it possible to make –word-diff default in git diff, git gui, gitk
Is it possible to set an option that git diff is always using
--word-diff=color whenever displaying diffs?
I know that there are command line arguments for gitk, git-gui and git diff, but are there config options I can set globally?
I found that this works for git-gui:
Adding this to .gitconfig works for guid
[gui] diffopts = --word-diff --color-words
But using this, I can not actually pick anything anymore. I get “diff fails to apply” whenever I want to commit any line or chunk.

If you frequently invoke
git diff you may define a git alias.
$ git config [--global] alias.df "diff --word-diff=color"
And then use
git df instead of
