Instead of having of unassociated file pairs pushed one at a time to a file diff tool, I'm looking for two folder trees being created and pushed to a folder-level diff tool. So I can see both the hierarchy and also do more top-down diffing. That is what the new dir-diff does (info below).
For SourceTree I am looking for the ability to select two commits and run git difftool ---dir-diff on their SHAs. And of course be able to run it with --cached as well.
Since the diff tab only supports file arguments I can't update it there. But now that I think about it, perhaps I can get it working using Custom Actions. I just noticed in that pane that $SHA actually is for commit(s). Hmmm.
"git difftool learned the "--dir-diff" option to spawn external diff tools that can compare two directory hierarchies at a time after populating two temporary directories, instead of running an instance of the external tool once per a file pair."
I would also love to see this happen. Now that Beyond Compare 4 is available on the Mac, it looks silly when it's not able to compare at the folder level. http://www.scootersoftware.com/images/FolderCompare.png http://www.scootersoftware.com/images/TextCompare.png
