Better git diff

git diff is very good and crisp to see quickly what changed, but if you are reviewing a big non-trivial change across many files it gets a bit tedious and irritating.

So I found this post –> http://jeetworks.org/node/90 which basically suggests using “git difftool” instead of just “git diff”. git difftool will have some default editor as the diffing agent.

Alternatively you can also set it yourself in the gitconfig to mayber soemthing like vimdiff.
