Difftool diffks

git diffks master

Someone (https://coderwall.com/p/o42nvq) on here had the tip I need to stop getting the annoying prompt from my difftool.

I'll just pastebomb my ~/.gitconfig in the hopes someone will get some use out of my settings.
I have yet to setup my dotfiles on github due to the headache that is privacy and security when sharing settings.

This is one more reason I really should just work hard at it one night instead of playing starcraft2, or natural selection 2, or left4dead 2... or any other computer game that ends in 2... CS:GO?

I type git diffks master it shows up in http://www.kaleidoscopeapp.com/
which really helps me figure out what the hell is going on sometimes

# The new git-scm.com site includes man pages designed for pleasant viewing in a web browser:

# The commands below can be used to configure git to open these pages when

Some other zsh alias I have

# git
alias gb='git branch -a -v'
alias gs='git status'
alias ga='git add -A'
alias gl='git branch -lav'
alias gd='git diffks master'
alias gco='git checkout'

Good luck with your git fu. It's worth it.

Say Thanks
