SourceTree is heavy when it loads to large changed file


Hi. I really love SourceTree and it helps me ;)


I am using SourceTree for Node.js GIT repository, and it has package-lock.json.

Screen Shot 2018-12-18 at 12.55.40.png

package-lock.jsond is changed when a node module is added, removed and updated.

The size of package-lock.json is approximately 500kb but it has many changed lines.

Then SourceTree is really heavy when show the diff.

When I clicked a commit including the file, when I check the staged files including the file..


How can I avoid the situation?

Thanks! You can add the file name pattern (package-lock.json) to the ignored list in Sourcetree's diff settings and it will no longer preview the contents. Hope that helps.

Thank you for your reply ;)


Yes, I want to ignore at SuorceTree diff but I cannot find out the settings.

How or where can I add the pettern "package-lock.json"?
