I prefer WebStorm as a diff tool but it doesn't work with SourceTree. I can successfully run a diff from the command line like so:
webstorm.exe diff c:\a.txt c:\b.txt
But setting up a similar thing in SourceTree just results in WebStorm opening and straight away closing - which seems to be the behaviour when it can't find either file. I have the following in the SourceTree Diff settings:
Diff Command: C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\WebStorm 131.130\bin\WebStorm.exe
Arguments: diff $LOCAL $REMOTE
Will $LOCAL and $REMOTE return absolute paths?
Incidentally merge also fails in the same way.
Thanks for any help.
diff $LOCAL $PWD/$REMOTE
$PWD/ on the remote path did the trick!
I tested DIFF on OS X Yosemite & latest versions of WS and ST. It should be analogue on Windows.
Please be careful with extra empty spaces. Full path is needed, even if the parent dir is on $PATH
