With my recent merge to Homebrew Cask you can use p4merge with no extra work. Assuming you’re already using Homebrew, just install p4v. Brew cask install p4v and then configure p4merge as the default mergetool. Git config -global merge.tool p4merge Now whenever you run git mergetool, you’ll be presented with p4merge. How does it work?
Git is my favorite SCV system up to now and most probably will be in the future. Besides of many great features is has pretty good automatic merge tool, that is able to solve conflicts, but not all of them. I found p4merge tool much better in case of automatic merging and manual solving the most hard conflicts. Is is very simple to mix together those two things to have the best from both of them and now I will show you how to do that.
First of all, you have to install p4merge tool. Go to p4merge tool download page, choose “Browse by platform” tab, pick your platform (in my case it was Macintosh) and download P4V: Visual Client. After downloading, open dmg file and copy p4merge tool to Applications folder in your Dock.
Second step is to create two simple bash scripts: p4merge and p4diff, that will be executed when git needs merge or diff tool. Create these scripts in directory that is in your’s system PATH (i.e. /usr/local/bin/).
Don’t forget to add executable mode/flag to these scripts. A long walk to water audiomrs. parker's 6th grade l.a. classic.
