Frequently Asked Questions

Does Gitfox offer a one-time purchase?

No. Gitfox only has one version that is always up to date. We realize that subscriptions are not everyones preferred purchase option and that is why Gitfox subscriptions are priced lower as we would be able to with just a one-time purchase. Providing a one-time purchase would also result in a fragmented product with unmaintained versions.

Can I use Gitfox after I cancel my subscription?

Of course. Your license remains active until the end of the current subscription period. After that, Gitfox reverts back to its unlicensed state and you can still use it for non-commercial purposes.

How do I change my Difftool?

Gitfox emulates the git difftool command and automatically uses the default difftool that is specified in your git config.


Gitfox has defaults built in for the following difftools, that are used if there is not an explicit command configured for it:

  • araxis
  • opendiff
  • filemerge

You can specify them like so

	tool = <toolname>
	tool = <toolname>


For any other difftool, Gitfox uses the specified command. For e.g. Kaleidoscope this would look like this.

[mergetool "Kaleidoscope"]
	cmd = ksdiff --merge --output \"$MERGED\" --base \"$BASE\" -- \"$LOCAL\" --snapshot \"$REMOTE\" --snapshot
	trustexitcode = true
[difftool "Kaleidoscope"]
	cmd = ksdiff --partial-changeset --relative-path \"$MERGED\" -- \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\"
	tool = Kaleidoscope
	tool = Kaleidoscope

Usually you don't have to do this yourself, since most tools provide integration themselves.

How can I change my default Terminal?

Gitfox uses the default application that is associated with the public.unix-executable content type on your system

If you are using iTerm 2

  • Open iTerm
  • Click the menu item iTerm2 → Make iTerm2 Default Term

If you are using another terminal

  • Run open /usr/bin
  • Right click on any unix executable like e.g. cd
  • Select Get Info
  • Under Open with: select your new default Terminal application
  • Click Change All...
