Using Notepad++ for your git commit messages
How can I use Notepad++ to edit my git commit messages?
With spaces and parentheses and plus signs, oh my. With all that in the path to notepad++.exe, how are you supposed to get git to call it properly? With just the right combination of single and double quotes, of course:
$ git config --global core.editor "'C:/Program Files (x86)/Notepad++/notepad++.exe'\
-multiInst -notabbar -nosession -noPlugin"
