I have kdiff3 installed on my Mac (Version 0.9.97, 64 bit). Here's my ~/.gitconfig:

[filter "media"]
    required = true
    clean = git media clean %f
    smudge = git media smudge %f
    name = My Name
    email = me@example.com

    editor = atom --wait
    tool = kdiff3
[mergetool "kdiff3"]
    path = /Applications/kdiff3.app/Contents/MacOS/kdiff3
    tool = kdiff3
[difftool "kdiff3"]
    path = /Applications/kdiff3.app/Contents/MacOS/kdiff3

Everything seems to be fine, except for the fact that when I do git diff, I see the output of the console diff. Any ideas on how to solve this?

  • Is it possible to update your Git and use git difftool (docs) instead?

Don't use

git diff myfile.txt


git difftool myfile.txt.
