I am browsing the differences between two branches of a repository via
git diff --name-only branch1 branch2
I also use the
--name-status option sometimes, since I may need to see what sort of difference there is for a given file. Plodding along with plain old
git will do the job, but there are some obvious deficiencies. The main ones are: no color, no Emacs operations, and you cannot collapse directories. It makes this diff rather cumbersome to work through. Moreover, both branches are large and there are many differences between them.
Does Magit have some sort of diff interface that allows you to use
--name-status? I don't see any switches or options for doing this in
