I’m using vim DirDiff plugin to compare 2 branches. This works great for the most part except:
When I compare a branch to the current branch (git difftool -t vimDirDiff --dir-diff master)
If there is a file that exists in $LOCAL that is not in $REMOTE I copy the file into $REMOTE, but when I exit the difftool the file is not in the current branch. I would expect the new file to be there so I can add it.
Is there a way to make it sync the new files in the temp folder with the current branch? Or even to use the current directory for $REMOTE
