Git Diff not working on one project


Hey there, I’m new to Atom (like everyone, I guess), and I’m having trouble with the gitdiff module.
For some reason, it stopped working on my current active project, and I really don’t know why.

I wouldn’t be surprised if I triggered it somehow with a keybinding that I’m not aware of, but I don’t know which one it would be.

Any pointers for resetting it/turning it back on?


Git Diff does not seem to be working at all

Only thing I can think of is check to see if the package is installed and disabled. Go to the Packages view in Settings and check the Git Diff package. If it is disabled you’ll see a disabled label next to the version number and an Enable button:

If it is enabled, then I don’t really have any other suggestions other than watching the JS console when you open the file.


Thanks for the response! I got it working, turned out there was an improperly placed capital letter somewhere in my file structure that was messing things up.

Fixed now!


@DorianListens can you provide specifics on how you fixed this?


The folder I was woking in was titled with a capital letter.
I removed the capital and replaced it with a lower case equivalent, and presto!
