Set up extMerge as the merging tool

Open your .gitconfig and put this into the file:

[merge]  
tool = extMerge  
[mergetool "extMerge"]  
cmd = extMerge "$BASE" "$LOCAL" "$REMOTE" "$MERGED"  
trustExitCode = false

Then, run this wnen you need to merge some modifications:

git mergetool

The same with diff. Instead of viewing diff in the console you may view and edit modifications in the extDiff window. Put this into .gitconfig:

[diff]  
external = extDiff

Then, run this:

git diff

Also, git gui and gitk commands might be found useful by some users when working with git.
