Sublime Merge includes a command line tool, smerge, to work with repositories on the command line. This can be used to open repositories, search, and merge files.
## Sublime Merge Command Line Usage Sublime Merge includes a command line tool, `smerge`, to work with repositories on the command line. This can be used to open repositories, search, and merge files. ### Setup #### Windows Add `C:\Program Files\Sublime Merge` to your environment `%PATH%` variable. #### macOS You'll want to add a symlink (symbolic link) to `smerge`. Assuming you've placed Sublime Merge in the Applications folder, and that you have a `~/bin` directory in your path, you can run: ```bash ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Merge.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/smerge" ~/bin/smerge ``` #### Linux `smerge` should already be available by default. However, it won't be if you're using a tarball, so you'll want to add a symlink to `sublime_merge` named `smerge`: ```bash ln -s /opt/sublime_merge/sublime_merge ~/bin/smerge ``` ### Git Merge Tool Setup The merge tool can be used to process merge conflicts within a Git repository from the command line. After configuring `smerge` using the instructions above, run the following from the repository directory: ```bash git config mergetool.smerge.cmd 'smerge mergetool "$BASE" "$LOCAL" "$REMOTE" -o "$MERGED"' git config mergetool.smerge.trustExitCode true git config merge.tool smerge ``` #### Git Merge Tool Usage To invoke the merge tool, run: ```bash git mergetool ``` > **Reference** [Sublime Merge Command Line Documentation](https://www.sublimemerge.com/docs/command_line)
