I want to push, but I want to see what changes i have before I push. In gitbash, I just need to do this: git diff --stat origin/master.
Is there a way to do this in SourceTree? If not it seems like a major gap.
You can already do this in git, because the log supports diffing between 2 arbitrary points in time and the remote branch you're tracking is in the log.
Make sure that you have 'Show Remote Branches' enabled. Then, right-click the remote branch in the sidebar (origin > master) and select 'Diff against current'. What this actually does is multi-select your local branch and the remote branch in the log, which shows the difference between them.
You can actually use Ctrl-Click to arbitrarily select any 2 commits and see the difference between them in the log, 'Diff against current' is just a short cut which is available for most entries in the sidebar.
I can't find where to enable "Show Remote Branches" but I must have it enabled, because this works. I had to choose which remote branch of course.
Just a note: I searched all the menus for this and the help, and was unable to find this. Maybe an opportunity to update the help files.
