showing - git status ignore whitespace




There is nothing changed, but eclipse egit marks the file as changed (4)

As a follow up, as I just ran into the same issue, another reason for EGit detecting all files as changed is a POSIX file permission problem at least when used together with Cygwin's git.

The following will fix that; however keep in mind that this also means that they are ignored then:

$ git config core.filemode false

I'm using eclipse egit with github. I found something strange that I didn't change anything, but egit marked the file as "changed". See the images:

  1. the file "run.bat" is marked as "changed"

  2. Compare with "file in Git index", you can see nothing is different

  3. Compare with "file in HEAD", you can see nothing is different neither

My friend uses mac and I use windows, but we all configured git as "commit unix lineend".. I also checked the lineend of my source and the HEAD, they are the same(I configured git to convert them to "\r\n" when pulling)

Where is wrong? Is it a bug of Egit?


Eclipse Preferences / Team / Git / Configuration / User Settings

("core" section)

key: autocrlf
value: false

The key should already exist, so just need to edit the value.

If creating a new key then use core.autocrlf.


In General->Workspace. Select Text encoding UTF-8


One of the first things I've had issues with in Git.

I've said this forever:

git config --system core.autocrlf false

To get rid of CR highlighting in diff and patch views, use:

git config --system core.whitespace cr-at-eol

If you share your computers with others, replace '--system' with '--global'.
