In the spirit of sharing Mercurial extensions this week, did you know that there’s a pager extension that ships with Mercurial? After using Git for a while and having a nice pager when looking at diffs, I got really annoyed by the fact that I constantly had to scroll my terminal for
hg diff. I found the Pager extension and there was much rejoicing.
So turn it on and be happy. It’ll only page when you need to. And while you’re in your
.hgrc, enable the also-shipped-but-not-on-by-default Color extension.
