vimdiff cheat sheet

##git mergetool

In the middle file (future merged file), you can navigate between conflicts with ]c and [c.

Choose which version you want to keep with :diffget //2 or :diffget //3 (the //2 and //3 are unique identifiers for the target/master copy and the merge/branch copy file names).

:diffupdate (to remove leftover spacing issues)
:only (once you’re done reviewing all conflicts, this shows only the middle/merged file)
:wq (save and quit)
git add .
git commit -m “Merge resolved”

If you were trying to do a git pull when you ran into merge conflicts, type git rebase –continue.
