Using Meld from Cygwin

  1. Download and install Meld for Windows. If you get “missing MSVCP100.dll”, install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redist
  2. add to ~/.bash_profile
    alias meld="/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Meld/Meld.exe"
    
  3. open a new Cygwin terminal.

Usage

Many use Meld for git mergetool. For Cygwin:

git config --global diff.tool meld
git config --global merge.tool meld

git config --global mergetool.meld.path "/cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/Meld/Meld.exe"
