External diff from status view (/ as real replacement)

Asked by Edgar Jakumeit

On pressing the diff button to the left of the file entry in status view/main window, I'd like to start up an external diff tool.

When I register an external diff tool in qbzr.conf with
tm = tortoisemerge
then I can use this tool from the commit dialog or from the qdiff dialog involving further steps, but I don't get it directly from main gui.

Adding to bazaar.conf this
diff = diff --using tortoisemerge
works for the command line, but not for qdiff / bazaar explorer.

Is it possible to configure an external diff tool as a full replacement for qdiff, not only as an addition (for all qdiff users) ?

I think you can add your own tool to do so, but there is no direct support for customizing diff command in the Explorer. Feel free to file a bug as feature request.
