Less for your git pager

18 Aug 2018

A git diff or git log starts the less program. Perhaps not the fanciest tool but more powerful than you might expect.

This post details the arguments that can be passed to less and also how to navigate once less is running. Things not relevant for git are omitted.

Your current configuration:

git config --get core.pager

If this returns nothing, there is room for improvement there!

TL&DR:

Configure something sensible:

# Short version
git config --global core.pager "less -eFiJM~ -j3 --tabs=3"

# Not so short version
git config --global core.pager "less --LONG-PROMPT --tabs=3 --quit-at-eof --quit-if-one-screen --tilde --jump-target=3 --ignore-case --status-column"
h : See all less commands.
