    I just recently learned that there’s a --gui option for git difftool, which is nice because I use Kaleidoscope for heavy diffs (and merges too with git mergetool) but recently picked up delta [0] for quicker diffing in the terminal. Now I can have both easily.

  • Best diff config for vim in 2021?
    reddit.com/r/vim | 2021-07-17
    Since newer diff algorithms are merged into vim and there are tools specifically designed for diffing two files, I wonder what is the best vimdiff option? Here is mine: vim " vimdiff configs if has("patch-8.1.0360") set diffopt=filler,internal,algorithm:histogram,indent-heuristic endif There is also delta which seem to have a smarter algorithm. Is there a way to use delta in vim instead?

  • Difftastic: Syntax-aware structured diff tool
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-07-07
    Thanks, this is good advice. There are some super featureful diff tools out there. For example, https://github.com/dandavison/delta does a line-based diff but it also syntax highlights its output.

    I'm hoping that defining syntax in a separate TOML file will let end users extend difftastic for their own languages/config files. I want to keep difftastic small and manageable.

    You'll need to be more specific if you want help. What have you tried? What worked? What didn't work? I've used delta as my primary git diff pager for a year or two now and enjoy it.
