Using two-way merge/conflict tool in (n)vim

I don’t like 3-ways merge. For a long time, I’ve been using this plugin to solve my merge conflicts in a 2-way way.

In a Reddit comment today, someone posted that GIT has built-in support to 2-ways in (n)vim since 2021 🤯.

To activate it, first check if your GIT version has support for it:

# (n)vimdiff1 is what you are looking for
git mergetool --tool-help

After checking the support, enable it with:

git mergetool --tool=nvimdiff1
git config --global mergetool.hideResolved true
