How to diff OpenOffice documents within SourceTree

Dear friends of SourceTree

Q: Is there a way to do "git-diff" of OpenOffice/LibreOffice documents (ae. *.odt) comparing line by line (or even better word by word) by using SourceTree?

Note: I do know the way installing odt2txt, configuring [path to your git repo]/.gitattributes and configuring ~/.gitconfig as mentioned ae. here. This works (nearly) fine at the console ($ git diff myopenofficefile.odt) - can I trigger SourceTree to get a something like that?

Would be a great to get an answer (or a feature at SourceTree wink) - thank you all!

Greetings — Adrian

You can configure SourceTree to use a third party diff tool.  So if there's one out there that does this, or you script something using od2txt, you should be able to make that work.
