tutorial How can I turn on a pager for the output of git status?
git wiki (1)
You can turn on and off paging of specific commands with the
pager.<cmd> setting, in this case
If the value is boolean, turns on or off pagination of the output of a particular Git subcommand when writing to a tty. Otherwise, turns on pagination for the subcommand using the pager specified by the value of pager.. If --paginate or --no-pager is specified on the command line, it takes precedence over this option. To disable pagination for all commands, set core.pager or GIT_PAGER to cat.
Run the following:
git config --global pager.status true
or manually add the following to the end of your ~/.gitconfig:
[pager] status = true
I want the output of
git status to be returned in a
less-like environment. This already works for
git diff, but not
git status. I already tried adding the following to
~/.gitconfig, but it didn't work:
[core] pager = less
What am I missing? Thanks.
