No one likes conflits. But we should not be scared of resolving them. Git provide us wit a merging tool which will be triggered if there are changes on same lines form different sources. Or when on line was deleted in first src and added in another. Marge conflict can accrue during: merge, rebase, pull, stash apply, cherry-pick commands.
To abort git merge use:
# for merge conflicts use git merge --abort # for rebase conflicts use git rebase --abort
Configure git mergetool
You can use one of git extension to resolve conflicts in more present way. Before you use mergetool you need to make some configuration. There are many free and paid extension available ( opendiff, kdiff3, tkdiff, xxdiff, meld, tortoisemerge, gvimdiff, diffuse, diffmerge, ecmerge, p4merge, araxis, bc, codecompare, smerge, emerge, vimdiff, nvimdiff ):
# mergetool will not work out of the box $ git mergetool
This message is displayed because ‘merge.tool’ is not configured.
See ‘git mergetool –tool-help’ or ‘git help config’ for more details.
‘git mergetool’ will now attempt to use one of the following tools:
opendiff kdiff3 tkdiff xxdiff meld tortoisemerge gvimdiff diffuse diffmerge ecmerge p4merge araxis bc codecompare smerge emerge vimdiff nvimdiff
