I only discovered Meld this week and it is an incredible tool - thank you for creating it!!
Is there any way of either (1) making the right side read-only, or (2) disabling comparison in both directions, only allowing right to left?
I’m using Meld to compare my current git branch (left) with another branch (right) and selectively pull in changes.
Although I only want to pull changes from right to left, it’s easy to be distracted by the left to right suggestions, and to accidentally click one of the arrows to move from left to right.
I only want to allow operations from right to left, i.e. not allow me to make changes to the right at all.
For reference, I am checking out my active branch (left) then doing git difftool against the reference branch (right) which is the one I want to be read-only in Meld:
git difftool -d referencebranch
This is my .gitconfig:
tool = meld
prompt = false
cmd = meld “$REMOTE” “$LOCAL” --auto-compare
Thank you so much!
