Using vim as git difftool

I’ve configured Vim as git difftool in .gitconfig

    tool = vimdiff

If there are changes in N files, i have to close vim (:qa) to see the next diff.

    There is no way to tell vimdiff to go to the next file, because git difftool invocates vimdiff for each diff file.

    So when you end vimdiff with qa, git diff executes vimdiff again with the next file. From vimdiff’s perspective there is no next diff file.

    You can suppress the prompt for launching vimdiff, which makes it less annoying:

    git config --global difftool.prompt false

    But, as you already found out yourself, the vim plugin vim-fugitive is the way to go. This excellent plugin offers various commands for diffing and merging.
