I'm using a Macbook Pro and have installed both Visual Studio Code (with command line) and Sourcetree. I used sourcetree to setup the external diff tool. And can confirm git is using it by going to a directory with changes and running "git difftool". This will launch vscode diff on the files in the directory. But whenever I right click a changed file in Sourcetree and select External Diff nothing happens. I verified there are no other git config files by using:
find /my/home/dir -n ".gitconfig"
Here is my .gitconfig
editor = code --wait
tool = sourcetree
tool = sourcetree
prompt = false
cmd = code --wait --diff $LOCAL $REMOTE
cmd = code --wait $MERGED
trustExitCode = true
Is there some step I'm missing or something I did incorrect?
Still not working after complete reinstall of sourcetree. Followed these directions and even removed the app before starting over.
No I don't think doing that to Sourcetree will change anything.
Playing around with it I followed the settings described here to get it working from the command line, then tried transposing them into the Sourcetree settings
Sorry for the late reply, no I cannot get it to launch on macOS at the moment. The Sourcetree setup and the manual setup in my config look the same, but while I can launch vscode via:
I can't get it to launch via Sourcetree. I will pass it along to my macOS colleagues.
