Setting Sublime Text as Git Editor

$ git config --global core.editor "subl -n -w"


The -n tells Sublime to open a new window and -w says to wait for the files to be closed before returning. (Run $ subl --help to find out what these and other flags mean.)

If that doesn’t work, try:

$ git config --global core.editor "/Applications/Sublime Text"


You can always confirm which editor you have set for git by running

$ git config --global -e
