Il y a une option qui n'est pas commentée, c'est git.core.whitespace

Si j'en crois la doc c'est pour désactiver l'auto suppression des espaces en fin de ligne. C'est ça ?

Bonjour Charles,

(désolé pour le lag, je n'avais apparemment pas été notifié par e-mail de ton commentaire)

Pas exactement… Git ne retire pas ces trucs-là pour toi via cette option : il faudrait un filtre textuel. C'est généralement plutôt le boulot, en amont, de ton éditeur (tous les éditeurs valables savent le faire).

L'option core.whitespace liste les « problèmes » d'espacement à considérer/signaler lors d'un git diff (et par extension un git add -p) ou d'un git apply --whitespace=errors, et à tenter de corriger lors d'un git apply ou git rebase en --whitespace=fix.

La valeur trailing-space est un raccourci pour blank-at-eol,blank-at-eof, qui cible donc les espacements en fin de ligne et les lignes en fin de fichier (ce dernier souci est très courant). Indiquée ici en négatif (-trailing-space), elle désactive ces détections / ne considère pas ces aspects comme problématiques.

Un grand merci pour la config

Just added the %ad variant in git lg, defaulting to --date=relative, to let you override the date format in git lg using --date=…. Neat trick by Erwann Leblanc 🎉

Merci pour ces précieuses informations !
L'option pull.rebase est presque géniale ; elle ne me montre plus ce que je pull, y a t il moyen de revoir tout ça ?

Copy link

tdd commented Jul 14, 2016

Heeeeu en fait pull.rebase ne change rien au fonctionnement du fetch, c'est après que ça change (rebase au lieu de merge). Du coup si tu ne vois rien avant la partie rebase, c'est qu'en fait tu étais, sur ton essai, à jour côté fetch.

Dernière mise à jour à l'instant, suite aux suggestions de @mbrehin

@tdd les suggestions de @mbrehin sont visibles quelque part ? (Pour comprendre les différences)

Autant pour moi, j’avais suivi un lien ou j’avais pas l’historique du Gist.

@tdd Un avis sur l'utilisation de pager = less -FX comme proposé ici ?

Copy link

mbrehin commented Jun 12, 2019

@bgondy on utilise diff-so-fancy même si ça n’est pas retranscrit ici (on ne veut pas forcer la main et imposer un outil externe aux gens qui souhaitent récupérer cette conf).

En pratique notre conf contient ça : pager = diff-so-fancy | less --tabs=4 -RFX
