Hello, has anybody running integration with Araxis Merge? I have installed command line tools, set up path but SourceTree still says "Cannot find Araxis Merge". Does anybody know what should I check?
Thanks for help.
Did you install the command-line tools in the recommended location, or somewhere else that you then added to your PATH? Because PATH doesn't affect Mac OS X apps SourceTree looks in the standard locations only such as ~/bin, /bin, /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin.
Starting with Araxis Merge 2013.4283 (released 14 January 2013) the utilities are now placed inside the application bundle at "/Applications/Araxis\ Merge.app/Contents/Utilities/" so perhaps SourceTree can be updated to just look for them there. So folks just need to install Araxis Merge and then choose it in SourceTree with no copying/linking of files.
Actually, I went ahead and created a Feature Request for this - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-1370
I found the utilities installed to /Applications/Araxis Merge.app/Contents/Utilities
I had the same issue integrating them with SourceTree and tried the solution of creating links to araxisgitdiff and araixisgitmerge in ~/bin with no success.
I did have success by copying all the files in the utilties folder to /usr/bin using:
sudo cp /Applications/Araxis\ Merge.app/Contents/Utilities/* /usr/bin
SourceTree only needs to be able to see the command line tools 'compare' and 'araxisgitmerge' (or 'araxishgmerge') in the usual path locations such as /usr/local/bin.
Unfortunately Araxis's instructions about adding /Applications/Araxis Merge.app/Contents/Utilities to the PATH variable to resolve their changes in the latest versions doesn't work for any Mac OS X apps, since the PATH variable has no effect there, it only affects terminals. The quickest way to resolve it is to do this:
ln -s /Applications/Araxis\ Merge.app/Contents/Utilities/compare /usr/local/bin/compare
ln -s /Applications/Araxis\ Merge.app/Contents/Utilities/araxishgmerge /usr/local/bin/araxishgmerge
ln -s /Applications/Araxis\ Merge.app/Contents/Utilities/araxisgitmerge /usr/local/bin/araxishgmerge
~/bin isn't on the path for Mac OS X apps by default so that's why it didn't work when you did that.
