       tigrc - Tig configuration file

       set   variable = value
       bind  keymap key action
       color area fgcolor bgcolor [attributes]
       source path

       You can permanently set an option by putting it in the ~/.tigrc file.
       The file consists of a series of commands. Each line of the file may
       contain only one command. Commands can span multiple lines if each line
       is terminated by a backslash (\) character.

       The hash mark (#) is used as a comment character. All text after the
       comment character to the end of the line is ignored. You can use
       comments to annotate your initialization file.

       Certain options can be manipulated at runtime via the option menu. In
       addition, options can also be toggled with the :toggle prompt command
       or by entering the configuration command into the prompt.

       In some environments, a user’s configuration will be stored in the
       alternate location $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/tig/config. For brevity, this
       document will refer only to ~/.tigrc.

       Alternatively to using ~/.tigrc, Tig options can be set by putting them
       in one of the Git configuration files, which are read by Tig on
       startup. See git-config(1) for which files to use. The following
       example show the basic syntax to use for settings, bindings and colors.

           [tig] show-changes = true
           [tig "color"] cursor = yellow red bold
           [tig "bind"] generic = P parent

       In addition to tig-specific options, the following Git options are read
       from the Git configuration:

           Colors for the various UI types. Can be configured via the
           git-colors setting.

           The width of the commit ID. See also id-width option.

           The editor command. Can be overridden by setting GIT_EDITOR.

           The path to the root of the working tree.

           The encoding to use for displaying of file content.

           The encoding used for commits. The default is UTF-8.

       A few selective variables can be configured via the set command. The
       syntax is:

           set variables = value


           set commit-order = topo         # Order commits topologically
           set git-colors = no             # Do not read Git's color settings.
           set horizontal-scroll = 33%     # Scroll 33% of the view width
           set blame-options = -C -C -C    # Blame lines from other files

           # Wrap branch names with () and tags with <>
           set reference-format = (branch) <tag>

           # Configure blame view columns using command spanning multiple lines.
           set blame-view = \
                   date:default \
                   author:abbreviated \
                   file-name:auto \
                   id:yes,color \
                   line-number:yes,interval=5 text

       Or in the Git configuration files:

                   line-graphics = no      # Disable graphics characters
                   tab-size = 8            # Number of spaces per tab

       The type of variables is either bool, int, string, or mixed.

       Valid bool values
           To set a bool variable to true use either "1", "true", or "yes".
           Any other value will set the variable to false.

       Valid int values
           A non-negative integer.

       Valid string values
           A string of characters. Optionally, use either ' or " as

       Valid mixed values
           These values are composites of the above types. The valid values
           are specified in the description.

       The following variables can be set:

       diff-options (string)
           A space-separated string of diff options to use in the diff view.
           git-show(1) is used for formatting and always passes
           --patch-with-stat. Can control display of commit header metadata,
           passing option --format. This option overrides any options
           specified in the TIG_DIFF_OPTS environment variable (described in
           tig(1)), but is itself overridden by diff flags given on the
           command line invocation.

       blame-options (string)
           A space-separated string of default blame options. Can be used for
           telling git-blame(1) how to detect the origin of lines. The options
           are ignored when Tig is started in blame mode and given blame
           options on the command line.

       log-options (string)
           A space-separated string of default options that should be passed
           to the git-log(1) command used by the log view. Options can be
           overridden by command line options. Used internally override custom
           ‘pretty.format’ settings that break the log view.

       main-options (string)
           A space-separated string of default options that should be passed
           to the git-log(1) command used by the main view. Options can be
           overridden by command line options.

       reference-format (string)
           A space-separated string of format strings used for formatting
           reference names. Wrap the name of the reference type with the
           characters you would like to use for formatting, e.g.  [tag] and
           <remote>. If no format is specified for local-tag, the format for
           tag is used. Similarly, if no format is specified for
           tracked-remote the remote format is used. Prefix with hide: to not
           show that reference type, e.g.  hide:remote. Supported reference
           types are:

           •   head : The current HEAD.

           •   tag : A signed tag.

           •   local-tag : An unsigned tag.

           •   remote : A remote.

           •   tracked-remote : The remote tracked by current HEAD.

           •   replace : A replaced reference.

           •   branch : Any other reference.

       line-graphics (mixed) [ascii|default|utf-8|<bool>]
           What type of character graphics for line drawing.

       truncation-delimiter (mixed) [utf-8|<string>]
           A single character to draw where columns are truncated. The default
           is "~". The special value "utf-8" refers to the character "..."
           ("Midline Horizontal Ellipsis").

       horizontal-scroll (mixed)
           Interval to scroll horizontally in each step. Can be specified
           either as the number of columns, e.g.  5, or as a percentage of the
           view width, e.g.  33%, where the maximum is 100%. For percentages
           it is always ensured that at least one column is scrolled. The
           default is to scroll 50% of the view width.

       git-colors (list)
           A space-separated list of "key=value" pairs where the key is a Git
           color name and the value is a Tig color name, e.g.
           "branch.current=main-head" and "grep.filename=grep.file". Set to
           "no" to disable.

       show-notes (mixed) [<reference>|<bool>]
           Whether to show notes for a commit. When set to a note reference
           the reference is passed to git show --notes=. Notes are enabled by

       show-changes (bool)
           Whether to show staged and unstaged changes in the main view.

       show-untracked (bool)
           Whether to show also untracked changes in the main view.

       vertical-split (mixed) [auto|<bool>]
           Whether to split the view horizontally or vertically. "auto" (which
           is the default) means that it will depend on the window dimensions.
           When true vertical orientation is used, and false sets the
           orientation to horizontal.

       split-view-height (mixed)
           The height of the bottom view in a horizontally split display. Can
           be specified either as the number of rows, e.g.  5, or as a
           percentage of the view height, e.g.  80%, where the maximum is
           100%. It is always ensured that the smaller of the views is at
           least four rows high. The default is 67%.

       split-view-width (mixed)
           Width of the right-most view in a vertically split display. Can be
           specified either as the number of column, e.g.  5, or as a
           percentage of the view width, e.g.  80%, where the maximum is 100%.
           It is always ensured that the smaller of the views is at least four
           columns wide. The default is 50%.

       status-show-untracked-dirs (bool)
           Show untracked directories contents in the status view (analog to
           git ls-files --directory option). On by default.

       status-show-untracked-files (bool)
           Show untracked files in the status view (mirrors Git’s
           status.showUntrackedFiles option). On by default.

       tab-size (int)
           Number of spaces per tab. The default is 8 spaces.

       diff-context (int)
           Number of context lines to show for diffs.

       diff-highlight (mixed)
           Whether to highlight diffs using Git’s diff-highlight program.
           Defaults to false. When set to true then diff-highlight is used,
           else the option value is used as the path. When this option is in
           effect, highlighted regions are governed by color
           diff-add-highlight and color diff-del-highlight.

       ignore-space (mixed) [no|all|some|at-eol|<bool>]
           Ignore space changes in diff view. By default no space changes are
           ignored. Changing this to "all", "some" or "at-eol" is equivalent
           to passing "--ignore-all-space", "--ignore-space" or
           "--ignore-space-at-eol" respectively to git diff or git show.

           Warning: when ignore-space is set to some, all or at-eol, then the
           status-update and status-revert may fail when updating or reverting
           chunks containing lines with space changes. Similarly,
           stage-update-line may fail when updating a line adjacent to a line
           with space changes

       commit-order (enum) [auto|default|topo|date|author-date|reverse]
           Commit ordering using the default (chronological reverse) order,
           topological order, date order or reverse order. When set to "auto"
           (which is the default), topological order is automatically used in
           the main view when the commit graph is enabled. In repositories
           with a long commit history it is advised to set this option to
           "default" to speed up loading of the main view.

       ignore-case (enum) [no|yes|smart-case]
           Ignore case in searches. "smart-case" ignores case if the search
           string doesn’t contain any uppercase letters. By default, the
           search is case sensitive.

       mailmap (bool)
           Read canonical name and email addresses for authors and committers
           from .mailmap. Off by default. See git-shortlog(1).

       wrap-lines (bool)
           Wrap long lines. By default, lines are not wrapped. Not compatible
           with line numbers enabled.

       focus-child (bool)
           Whether to focus the child view when it is opened. When disabled
           the focus will remain in the parent view, avoiding reloads of the
           child view when navigating the parent view. True by default.

       send-child-enter (bool)
           Whether to send "enter" key presses to the child view, even if
           parent view is active. When disabled the child view has to be
           explicitly focused to receive the "enter" key presses. In practice
           only relevant when set focus-child = no. True by default.

       editor-line-number (bool)
           Whether to pass the selected line number to the editor command. The
           line number is passed as +<line-number> in front of the file name.
           Example: vim +10 tig.c

       history-size (int)
           Size of the persistent ~/.tig_history file when compiled with
           readline support. Default is 500. Set to 0 to disable.

       mouse (bool)
           Whether to enable mouse support. Off by default since it makes
           selecting text from the terminal less intuitive. When enabled hold
           down Shift (or Option on Mac) to select text. Mouse support
           requires that ncurses itself support mouse events.

       mouse-scroll (int)
           Interval to scroll up or down using the mouse. The default is 3
           lines. Mouse support requires that ncurses itself support mouse
           events and that you have enabled mouse support in ~/.tigrc with set
           mouse = true.

       mouse-wheel-cursor (bool)
           Whether to prefer moving the cursor to scrolling the view when
           using the mouse wheel. Off by default. Combines well with set
           mouse-scroll = 1. Mouse support requires that ncurses itself
           support mouse events and that you have enabled mouse support in
           ~/.tigrc with set mouse = true.

       start-on-head (bool)
           Start with cursor on HEAD commit.

       refresh-mode (mixed) [manual|auto|after-command|periodic|<bool>]
           Configures how views are refreshed based on modifications to
           watched files in the repository. When set to manual, nothing is
           refreshed automatically. When set to auto, views are refreshed when
           a modification is detected in another view. When set to
           after-command only refresh after returning from an external
           command. When set to periodic, visible views are refreshed
           periodically using refresh-interval.

       refresh-interval (int)
           Interval in seconds between view refresh update checks when
           refresh-mode is set to periodic.

       file-args (args)
           Command line arguments referring to files. These are filtered using

       rev-args (args)
           Command line arguments referring to revisions. These are filtered
           using git-rev-parse(1).

   View settings
       The view settings define the order and options for the different
       columns of a view. Each view setting expects a space-separated list of
       column specifications. Column specifications starts with the column
       type, and can optionally be followed by a colon (:) and a list of
       column options. E.g. the following column specification defines an
       author column displaying the author email and with a fixed width of 20
       characters: author:email,width=20.

       The first option value in a column specification is always the display
       option. When no display value is given, yes is assumed. For display
       options expecting an enumerated value this will automatically resolve
       to the default enum value. For example, file-name will automatically
       have its display setting resolve to auto.

       Specifications can also be given for a single column, for example to
       override the defaults in the system tigrc file. To override a single
       column, use the column name as a suffix after the view setting name,
       e.g. main-view-date will allow to set the date in the main view.


           # Enable both ID and line numbers in the blame view
           set blame-view = date:default author:full file-name:auto id:yes,color \
                            line-number:yes,interval=5 text

           # Change grep view to be similar to `git grep` format
           set grep-view = file-name:yes line-number:yes,interval=1 text

           # Show file sizes as units
           set tree-view = line-number:no,interval=5 mode author:full \
                           file-size:units date:default id:no file-name

           # Show line numbers for every 10th line in the pager view
           set pager-view = line-number:yes,interval=10 text

           # Shorthands to change view settings for a previously defined column
           set main-view-date = custom
           set main-view-date-format = "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M"
           set blame-view-line-number = no
           # Use Git's default commit order, even when the commit graph is enabled.
           set commit-order = default

       The following list shows which the available view settings and what
       column types they support:

       blob-view, diff-view, log-view, pager-view, stage-view
           line-number, text

           author, date, file-name, id, line-number, text

           file-name, line-number, text

       main-view, reflog-view
           author, date, commit-title, id, line-number, ref

           author, date, commit-title, id, line-number, ref

           author, date, commit-title, id, line-number

           file-name, line-number, status

           author, date, id, file-name, file-size, line-number, mode

       Supported column types and their respective column options:


           •   display (mixed) [full|abbreviated|email|email-user|<bool>]: How
               to display author names. If set to "abbreviated" author
               initials will be shown.

           •   width (int): Fixed width for the column. When set to a value
               between 1 and 10, the author name will be abbreviated to the
               author’s initials. When set to zero, the width is automatically
               sized to fit the content.

           •   maxwidth (int): Maximum width of the column. Permit
               automatically sizing content, up to this limit.


           •   graph (mixed) [no|v2|v1]: Whether to show the revision graph in
               the main view on start-up. "v1" refers to the old graph
               rendering, which is less accurate but faster and thus
               recommended in large repositories. See also the line-graphics

           •   refs (bool): Whether to show references (branches, tags, and
               remotes) in the main view. Can be toggled.

           •   overflow (bool or int): Whether to highlight text in commit
               titles exceeding a given width. When set to a boolean, it
               enables or disables the highlighting using the default width of
               50 character. When set to an int, the assigned value is used as
               the maximum character width.


           •   display (mixed)
               [relative|relative-compact|custom|default|<bool>]: How to
               display dates. If set to "relative" or "relative-compact" a
               relative date will be used, e.g. "2 minutes ago" or "2m". If
               set to "custom", the strftime(3) string format specified in the
               "format" option is used.

           •   local (bool): If true, use localtime(3) to convert to local
               timezone. Note that relative dates always use local offsets.

           •   format (string): format string to pass to strftime(3) when
               custom display mode has been selected.

           •   width (int): Fixed width for the column. When set to zero, the
               width is automatically sized to fit the content.


           •   display (mixed) [auto|always|<bool>]: When to display file
               names. If set to "auto" file names are shown only when needed,
               e.g. when running: tig blame -C <file>.

           •   width (int): Width of the column. When set to zero, the width
               is automatically sized to fit the content.

           •   maxwidth (int): Maximum width of the column. Permit
               automatically sizing content, up to this limit.


           •   display (mixed) [default|units|<bool>]: How to display file
               sizes. When set to "units", sizes are shown using binary
               prefixes, e.g. 12524 bytes is shown as "12.2K".

           •   width (int): Fixed width for the filename column. When set to
               zero, the width is automatically sized to fit the content.


           •   display (bool): Whether to show commit IDs in the main view.

           •   width (int) : Fixed width for the commit ID column. When unset
               Tig will use the value of core.abbrev if found. See
               git-config(1) on how to set core.abbrev. When set to zero the
               width is automatically sized to fit the content of reflog (e.g.
               ref/stash@{4}) IDs and otherwise default to 7.


           •   display (bool): Whether to show line numbers.

           •   interval (int): Interval between line numbers.

           •   width (int): Fixed width for the column. When set to zero, the
               width is automatically sized to fit the content.


           •   display (bool): Whether to show file modes.

           •   width (int): Fixed width for the column. When set to zero, the
               width is automatically sized to fit the content.


           •   display (bool): Whether to show the reference name.

           •   width (int): Fixed width for the column. When set to zero, the
               width is automatically sized to fit the content.

           •   maxwidth (int): Maximum width of the column. Permit
               automatically sizing content, up to this limit.


           •   display (mixed) [no|short|long|<bool>]: How to display the
               status label.


           •   commit-title-overflow (bool or int): Whether to highlight
               commit titles exceeding a given width in the diff view. When
               set to a boolean, it enables or disables the highlighting using
               the default width of 50 character. When set to an int, the
               assigned value is used as the maximum character width.

       All column options can be toggled. For display options, use the option
       name as the prefix followed by a dash and the column name. E.g. :toggle
       author-display will toggle the display option in the author column. For
       all other options use the column name followed by a dash and then the
       option name as the suffix. E.g. :toggle commit-title-graph will toggle
       the graph option in the commit-title column. Alternatively, use the
       option menu to manipulate options.

       Using bind commands, keys can be mapped to an action when pressed in a
       given key map. The syntax is:

           bind keymap key action


           # Add keybinding to quickly jump to the next diff chunk in the stage view
           bind stage <Enter> :/^@@

           # Disable the default mapping for running git-gc
           bind generic G none

           # User-defined external command to amend the last commit
           bind status + !git commit --amend

           # User-defined internal command that reloads ~/.tigrc
           bind generic S :source ~/.tigrc

           # UTF8-encoded characters can be used as key values.
           bind generic ø @sh -c "printf '%s' %(commit) | pbcopy"

       Or in the Git configuration files:

           [tig "bind"]
                   # 'unbind' the default quit key binding
                   main = Q none
                   # Cherry-pick current commit onto current branch
                   generic = C !git cherry-pick %(commit)

       Keys are mapped by first searching the keybindings for the current
       view, then the keybindings for the generic keymap, and last the default
       keybindings. Thus, the view keybindings override the generic
       keybindings which override the built-in keybindings.

       Keybindings at the line-entry prompt are typically governed by the
       readline library, and are configured separately in ~/.inputrc. See
       readline(1). Tig respects but does not require an $if tig section in

           Valid keymaps are: main, diff, log, reflog, help, pager, status,
           stage, tree, blob, blame, refs, stash, grep and generic. Use
           generic to set key mapping in all keymaps. Use search to define
           keys for navigating search results during search.

       Key values
           Key values should never be quoted. Use either an ASCII or
           UTF8-encoded character or one of the following symbolic key names.
           Symbolic key names are case insensitive and starts with "<" and
           ends with ">". Use <Hash> to bind to the # key, since the hash mark
           is used as a comment character. Use <LessThan> to bind to the <

       <Enter>, <Space>, <Backspace>, <Tab>, <Escape> or <Esc>, <Left>,
       <Right>, <Up>, <Down>, <Insert> or <Ins>, <Delete> or <Del>, <Hash>,
       <LessThan> or <LT>, <Home>, <End>, <PageUp> or <PgUp>, <PageDown> or
       <PgDown>, <ScrollBack> or <SBack>, <ScrollFwd> or <SFwd>, <ShiftTab> or
       <BackTab>, <ShiftLeft>, <ShiftRight>, <ShiftDelete> or <ShiftDel>,
       <ShiftHome>, <ShiftEnd>, <SingleQuote>, <DoubleQuote>, <F1> ... <F19>

       To define key mappings with the Ctrl key, use <Ctrl-key>. In addition,
       key combos consisting of an initial Escape key followed by a normal key
       value can be bound using <Esc>key.


           bind main R             refresh
           bind main <Down>        next
           bind main <Ctrl-f>      scroll-page-down
           bind main <Esc>o        options
           bind main <ShiftTab>    parent


       •   Tig reads keystrokes via ncurses and is subject to various
           limitations. See ncurses(3x) and terminfo(5) (or termcap).

       •   Ctrl-m and Ctrl-i cannot be bound as they conflict with Enter and
           Tab respectively.

       •   Case differences cannot be distinguished in control sequences such
           as Ctrl-f and Ctrl-F.

       •   Ctrl-<Space> is typically translated to Ctrl-@, which is available
           for binding.

       •   Only some subset of special symbolic keys such as <ShiftTab> will
           be available in any given terminal emulator.

       •   Ctrl-z is automatically used for process control and will suspend
           Tig and open a subshell (use fg to reenter Tig).

               Actions are either specified as user-defined commands (external
               or internal) or using action names as described in the
               following sections.

   External user-defined command
       These actions start with one or more of the following option flags
       followed by the command that should be executed.

       !   Run the command in the
           foreground with output

       @   Run the command in the
           background with no output.

       +   Run the command
           synchronously, and echo
           the first line of output
           to the status bar.

       ?   Prompt the user before
           executing the command.

       <   Exit Tig after executing
           the command.

       >   Re-open Tig instantly in
           the last displayed view
           after executing the

       Unless otherwise specified, commands are run in the foreground with
       their console output shown (as if ! was specified). When multiple
       command options are specified their behavior are combined, e.g. "?<git
       commit" will prompt the user whether to execute the command and will
       exit Tig after completion.

       Browsing state variables
           User-defined commands can optionally refer to Tig’s internal state
           using the following variable names, which are substituted before
           commands are run:

               # Save the current commit as a patch file when the user selects a commit
               # in the main view and presses 'S'.
               bind main S !git format-patch -1 %(commit)

               # Create and checkout a new branch; specify custom prompt
               bind main B ?git checkout -b "%(prompt Enter new branch name: )"

               # Show commit statistics for the author under the cursor
               bind main U +sh -c 'git --no-pager shortlog -s --author="$(git show -s --format=%aE %(commit))" </dev/tty'

       Advanced shell-like commands
           If your command requires use of dynamic features, such as
           subshells, expansion of environment variables and process control,
           this can be achieved by using a shell command:

           Example 1. Configure a binding to copy the current commit ID to the

               bind generic I @sh -c "echo -n %(commit) | xclip -selection c"

           Or by using a combination of Git aliases and Tig external commands.
           The following example entries can be put in either the .gitconfig
           or .git/config file:

           Example 2. Git configuration which binds Tig keys to Git command

                       gitk-bg = !"gitk HEAD --not $(git rev-parse --remotes) &"
                       publish = !"for i in origin public; do git push $i; done"
               [tig "bind"]
                       # @-prefix means that the console output will not be shown.
                       generic = V !@git gitk-bg
                       generic = > !git publish

   Internal user-defined commands
       Actions beginning with a : will be run and interpreted as internal
       commands and act similar to commands run via Tig’s prompt. Valid
       internal commands are configuration file options (as described in this
       document) and pager view commands. Examples:

           # Reload ~/.tigrc when 'S' is pressed
           bind generic S :source .tigrc

           # Change diff view to show all commit changes regardless of file limitations
           bind diff F :set diff-options = --full-diff

           # Show the output of git-reflog(1) in the pager view
           bind generic W :!git reflog

           # Search for previous diff (c)hunk and next diff header
           bind stage 2 :?^@@
           bind stage D :/^diff --(git|cc)

           bind main I :toggle id                          # Show/hide the ID column
           bind diff D :toggle diff-options --minimal      # Use minimal diff algorithm
           bind diff [ :toggle diff-context -3             # Decrease context (-U arg)
           bind diff ] :toggle diff-context +3             # Increase context
           bind generic V :toggle split-view-height -10%   # Decrease split height

       Similar to external commands, pager view commands can contain variable
       names that will be substituted before the command is run.

   Action names
       Valid action names are described below. Note, all action names are
       case-insensitive, and you may use -, _, and . interchangeably, e.g.
       "view-main", "View.Main", and "VIEW_MAIN" are the same.

       Color commands control highlighting and the user interface styles. If
       your terminal supports color, these commands can be used to assign
       foreground and background combinations to certain areas. Optionally, an
       attribute can be given as the last parameter. The syntax is:

           color area fgcolor bgcolor [attributes]


           # Override the default terminal colors to white on black.
           color default           white   black
           # Diff colors
           color diff-header       yellow  default
           color diff-index        blue    default
           color diff-chunk        magenta default
           color "Reported-by:"    green   default
           # View-specific color
           color tree.date         black   cyan    bold

       Or in the Git configuration files:

           [tig "color"]
                   # A strange looking cursor line
                   cursor          = red   default underline
                   # UI colors
                   title-blur      = white blue
                   title-focus     = white blue    bold
           # View-specific color
           [tig "color.tree"]
                   date            = cyan  default bold

       Area names
           Can be either a built-in area name or a custom quoted string. The
           latter allows custom color rules to be added for lines matching a
           quoted string. Valid built-in area names are described below. Note,
           all names are case-insensitive, and you may use -, and _
           interchangeably, e.g. "Diff-Header" and "DIFF_HEADER" are the same.
           View-specific colors can be defined by prefixing the view name to
           the area name, e.g. "stage.diff-chunk" and "diff.diff-chunk".

       Color names
           Valid colors include: white, black, green, magenta, blue, cyan,
           yellow, red, default. Use default to refer to the default terminal
           colors, for example, to keep the background transparent when you
           are using a terminal with a transparent background.

           Colors can also be specified using the keywords color0, color1,
           ..., colorN-1 (where N is the number of colors supported by your
           terminal). This is useful when you remap the colors for your
           display or want to enable colors supported by 88-color and
           256-color terminals. Note that the color prefix is optional. If you
           prefer, you can specify colors directly by their numbers 0, 1, ...,
           N-1 instead, just like in the configuration file of Git.

       Attribute names
           Valid attributes include: normal, blink, bold, dim, reverse,
           standout, and underline. Note, not all attributes may be supported
           by the terminal.

   UI colors
       The colors and attributes to be used for the text that is not
       highlighted or that specify the use of the default terminal colors can
       be controlled by setting the default color option.

                        branches or commits. By
                        default, the palette uses
                        the ASCII colors, where
                        the second half of them
                        have the bold attribute
                        enabled to give a brighter

       Pretty print commit headers
           Commit diffs and the revision logs are usually formatted using
           pretty printed headers , unless --pretty=raw was given. This
           includes lines, such as merge info, commit ID, and author and
           committer date.

       pp-refs, pp-reflog, pp-reflogmsg, pp-merge

       Source commands make it possible to read additional configuration
       files. Sourced files are included in-place, meaning when a source
       command is encountered the file will be immediately read. Any commands
       later in the current configuration file will take precedence.

       If the given path does not exist, tig will proceed with a warning. Give
       the -q parameter to suppress the warning.

       The syntax is:

           source [-q] path


           source ~/.tig/colorscheme.tigrc
           source ~/.tig/keybindings.tigrc
