[ACCEPTED]-Trouble on setting the git 'core.editor'-osx-snow-leopard
The easiest way is to change the environment 13 variable EDITOR to point to mate. In your 12
.bash_profile add the following:
export EDITOR="/usr/local/bin/mate -w"
and re-start your terminal 11 session, or source the
As for your error 10 message:
error: More than one value for the key core.editor: mate
it means you've added multiple core.editor 9 lines in your .gitconfig.
~/.gitconfig to modify 8 your
.gitconfig and remove the extra lines, or if 7 you don't mind unsetting all of them use:
git config --global --unset-all core.editor
Then 6 use
git config --global --add core.editor "/usr/local/bin/mate -w"
then you can leave
$EDITOR set to what it was 5 previously set to.
mate is not located in 4
/usr/local/bin find where it is first by using
type mate (in bash, not 3 sure about other shells)
Since you want to 2 use
open as your
$GIT_EDITOR you will need the following:
-W Causes open to wait until the applications it opens (or that were already open) have exited. Use with the -n flag to allow open to function as an appropriate app for the $EDITOR environment variable. -n Open a new instance of the application(s) even if one is already running.
This 1 will work for that:
git config --global --unset-all core.editor git config --global --add core.editor "open -W -n"
The following works for me:
git config --global core.editor "open -a 'Sublime Text 2' -nW"
Using Mac OSX 2 10.7.4 and Sublime Text 2 Build 2181
I 1 have subl as an alias:
alias subl="/Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl"
For what it's worth, here's how I solved 10 it:
1) Run in Terminal:
sudo ln -s /Applications/Sublime\ Text.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl /usr/local/bin/subl
This adds a
subl alias 9 to
/usr/local/bin/ pointing to Sublime Text 3 app’s binary 8 file. Now running
subl in Terminal will launch 7 Sublime Text 3 app.
2) Run in Terminal:
git config --global core.editor "subl -n -w"
This 6 adds
editor = subl -n -w to the
[core] section of the
~/.gitconfig file. Now 5 running
git commit in Terminal will launch Sublime 4 Text 3 app (
subl) in a new window (
-n), and the 3 command line will wait (
-w) until the commit 2 message is saved.

To get this working for win7, open the .gitconfig 4 file in c:/users/username/ folder and add 3 the following line with --wait option outside 2 the double quotes.
[core] editor = 'F:/Program Files/Sublime Text 2/sublime_text.exe' --wait
Hope its helpful to win7 1 users
