Always git diff --check, kids! Really annoying to not be able to see your actual change in a file that accidentally or intentionally got formatted as part of a commit, since changing the whitespace doesn't matter in most languages. Afterwards, you'll need to re-initialize already cloned repositories with git init, which will essentially copy all hooks from the templates directory to that repository's. And there is not a hint, which causes confusion. Doing a normal git diff it will be useless because you will get a lot of diffs from the indentation changes. Note that this might lead to unexpected behaviour e. Suggestions cannot be applied from pending reviews. In my opinion, it would be without any problems in most cases.
These whitespace diffs make it almost impossible to view file diffs as needed before committing. Have a question about this project? Somehow this setting was set for Git command line but was not stored in any of the 3 config files that Eclipse would read. Some people want to paint whitespace breakages on old lines, too. Is there any consideration for this still? Store this as an alias and run before committing. Excepted from this license are code snippets that are explicitely marked as citations from another source.
You will need to login. Any chance of getting this promoted to a user pref setting that is applied automatically as the default state, then having the button to flip from there? I agree there are times when it should be flipped off, so having the button at the top of the page would be ideal. Tools are supposed to work for you and not vice versa. First, make sure you're using the coloured output e. The question remains: How can something as fundamental to version management as the proper handling of different line feed conventions on different platforms remain an issue for years? While this should not be a problem if your project is always clean of trailing spaces, it may not be what you want if you are in the wild west. For Bitbucket users, there is a proposed fix for this, but it hasn't been coded yet, and probably won't until there is enough interest.
Is there some way to correct this? Junior Member I came to the same conclusion as Ed Merks. Why in the hell is it so difficult to diff without all whitespace??? Please avoid of using it as far as possible. In specific cases it would be very confusing. Add this suggestion to a batch that can be applied as a single commit. Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. For instance, is about merging, not displaying differences, and deals with displaying word-level differences, and so forth.
For instance, the old commit had one whitespace error bbb , but you can focus on the new errors only: test done after Update Git 2. I initially found the current page while searching for a solution in Bitbucket, so if there are others out there in this situation, please go and vote! The problem is that this is not actually ignoring all whitespace differences—at least what I consider to be merely whitespace differences. Yet, if I go to the command line and do a git-diff of my working copy against my repo then the diffs look as I'd expect i. So according to the suggestion, dredd's output would use some visible notation for various forms of whitespace so one could easily see the difference in case the only mismatch is in type of whitespace or X spaces vs. Have a question about this project? As far as I understand, the platform team mostly avoids the issue by changing the workspace preferences to use Unix-style line endings.
This is very misleading, and makes issues like these hard to find. Only one suggestion per line can be applied in a batch. In the above command, set 'Semantic class' to callback. Have a question about this project? To see whitespace that you've deleted, simply use git diff -R to put the whitespace on the 'added' side of the comparison, where it does get highlighted. And I agree with that -w is a bad idea. You can see line-ending difference with the following command.
Everything else turned up by searching was a dead end as well. The checkbox is unchecked as default, as users should be clear about the function before it being enabled. You can go to the Bitbucket site and show your support. As the display for dredd doens't actually show which whitespace is from the parser, and which is formatting from dredd, it's. This ignores differences even if one line has whitespace where the other line has none. This highlights all whitespace changes everywhere in lines.
In that case you need to take care not to commit trailing spaces. When this option is not given, only whitespace errors in new lines are highlighted. Git automatically before commit You can tell git to react on trailing whitespace in a pre-commit hook. Junior Member Just in case anyone does a Google search for this issue and finds this forum post, I've had the same problem and was finally able to fix it. This is evidently addressed in which, I believe, is the right approach - just include an option to ignore line-endings in diffs in the comparison editor.
It took me a while to realize that it wasn't just showing me whitespace, but it was showing the entire file as one be change, and what would do that? This became very frustrating when working with other developers on different operating systems. Suggestions cannot be applied while the pull request is closed. There is no reason to leave trailing whitespace characters in your project's files, so don't add any. A git diff --check will tell you if there are any and you should not commit when you see them. Well the obvious answer was line-endings.
