Display issue with UTF-16 text files.


My configuration Sourcetree 4.0.1, Catalina.

I have a repo with localization strings files from macOS app encoded in UTF-16LE.

By default there are considered as binary.

In order to display the diff, I add the following:

1 Create a .gitattributes file in the root of your repository with:
*.strings diff=localizablestrings

2 Add the following to your ~/.gitconfig file or .git/config:
[diff "localizablestrings"]
textconv = "iconv -f utf-16 -t utf-8"


It works well in Sourcetree "File Status" view (both stagged and unstagged), see screen capture:

But it doesn't work in "History" view, see screen capture:

Where is it wrong ?

Thanks Pascal.

PS: source repo on
