Meld rocks for Merging Code Conflicts

I’ve tried a number of different merge/differencing tools in the past. BeyondCompare, TortoiseMerge, WinMerge, etc…

I’ve never found one that’s as easy to use and as understandable as Meld is. Do yourself a favor and head over to and grab yourself a copy. It’s great.

When you’ve got it go ahead and throw this in your git config. (Psst, the command for that is: git config --global --edit)

tool = meld
[mergetool "meld"]
cmd = 'C:/Program Files (x86)/Meld/meld.exe' $REMOTE $MERGED $LOCAL

You’ll probs want to update the path to your Meld exe.
