You can permanently set an option by putting it in the ~/.tigrc file. The file consists of a series of commands. Each line of the file may contain only one command. The hash mark (#) is used as a comment character. All text after the comment character to the end of the line is ignored. You can use comments to annotate your initialization file. Alternatively, options can be set by putting them in one of the git configuration files, which are read by tig on startup. See git-config(1) for which files to use.
A few selective variables can be configured via the set command. The syntax is: set variables = value Examples: set show-author = abbreviated # Show abbreviated author names. set show-date = relative # Show relative commit date. set show-rev-graph = yes # Show revision graph? set show-refs = yes # Show references? set show-line-numbers = no # Show line numbers? set line-number-interval = 5 # Interval between line numbers set commit-encoding = "UTF-8" # Commit encoding set horizontal-scroll = 33% # Scroll 33% of the view width Or in the git configuration files: [tig] show-date = yes # Show commit date? author-width = 10 # Set width of the author column line-graphics = no # Disable graphics characters tab-size = 8 # Number of spaces per tab The type of variables are either bool, int, string, or mixed. Valid bool values To set a bool variable to true use either "1", "true", or "yes". Any other value will set the variable to false. Valid int values A non-negative integer. Valid string values A string of characters. Optionally, use either ' or " as delimiters. Valid mixed values These values are composites of the above types. The valid values are specified in the description. Variables The following variables can be set: show-rev-graph (bool) Whether to show revision graph in the main view on start-up. Can be toggled. See also line-graphics options. show-refs (bool) Whether to show references (branches, tags, and remotes) in the main view on start-up. Can be toggled. show-author (mixed) ["abbreviated" | "default" | bool] How to display author names. If set to "abbreviated" author initials will be shown. Can be toggled. show-date (mixed) ["relative" | "short" | "default" | "local" | bool] Whether and how to show date. If set to "relative" a relative date will be used, e.g. "2 minutes ago". If set to "short" no time information is shown. If set to "local", localtime(3) is used. Can be toggled. author-width (int) Width of the author column. When set to 5 or below, the author name will be abbreviated to the author’s initials. line-graphics (mixed) [ "ascii" | "default" | "utf-8" | bool] What type of character graphics for line drawing. line-number-interval (int) Interval between line numbers. Note, you have to toggle on line numbering with n or the -n command line option. The default is to number every line. tab-size (int) Number of spaces per tab. The default is 8 spaces. horizontal-scroll (mixed) Interval to scroll horizontally in each step. Can be specified either as the number of columns, e.g. 5, or as a percentage of the view width, e.g. 33%, where the maximum is 100%. For percentages it is always ensured that at least one column is scrolled. The default is to scroll 50% of the view width. split-view-height (mixed) Height of the lower view in a split view. Can be specified either as the number of rows, e.g. 5, or as a percentage of the view height, e.g. 80%, where the maximum is 100%. It is always ensured that the smaller of the views is at least four rows high. The default is a view height of 66%. commit-encoding (string) The encoding used for commits. The default is UTF-8. Note this option is shadowed by the "i18n.commitencoding" option in .git/config. status-untracked-dirs (bool) Show untracked directories contents in the status view (analog to git ls-files --directory option. On by default.
Using bind commands keys can be mapped to an action when pressed in a given key map. The syntax is: bind keymap key action Examples: # A few keybindings bind main w scroll-line-up bind main s scroll-line-down bind main space enter bind diff a previous bind diff d next bind diff b move-first-line # An external command to update from upstream bind generic F !git fetch Or in the git configuration files: [tig "bind"] # 'unbind' the default quit key binding main = Q none # Cherry-pick current commit onto current branch generic = C !git cherry-pick %(commit) Keys are mapped by first searching the keybindings for the current view, then the keybindings for the generic keymap, and last the default keybindings. Thus, the view keybindings shadow the generic keybindings which Shadow the built-in keybindings. Keymaps Valid keymaps are: main, diff, log, help, pager, status, stage, tree, blob, blame, branch, and generic. Use generic to set key mapping in all keymaps. Key values Key values should never be quoted. Use either the ASCII value or one of the following symbolic key names. Symbolic key names are case insensitive, Use Hash to bind to the # key, since the hash mark is used as a comment character. Enter, Space, Backspace, Tab, Escape, Left, Right, Up, Down, Insert, Delete, Hash, Home, End, PageUp, PageDown, F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12. Action names Valid action names are described below. Note, all names are case-insensitive, and you may use -, _, and . interchangeably, e.g. "view-main", "View.Main", and "VIEW_MAIN" are the same. Actions Apart from the action names listed below, all actions starting with a ! will be available as an external command. External commands can contain variable names that will be substituted before the command is run. Valid variable names are: Table 1. Browsing state variables %(head) The currently viewed head ID. Defaults to HEAD %(commit) The currently selected commit ID. %(blob) The currently selected blob ID. %(branch) The currently selected branch name. %(directory) The current directory path in the tree view; empty for the root directory. %(file) The currently selected file. %(ref) The reference given to blame or HEAD if undefined. %(revargs) The revision arguments passed on the command line. %(fileargs) The file arguments passed on the command line. %(diffargs) The diff options passed on the command line. As an example, the following external command will save the current commit as a patch file: "!git format-patch -1 %(commit)". If your external command require use of dynamic features, such as subshells, expansion of environment variables and process control, this can be achieved by using a combination of git aliases and tig external commands. The following example entries can be put in either the .gitconfig or .git/config file: [alias] gitk-bg = !"gitk HEAD --not $(git rev-parse --remotes) &" publish = !"for i in origin public; do git push $i; done" [tig "bind"] generic = V !git gitk-bg generic = > !git publish Table 2.

Color commands control highlighting and the user interface styles. If your terminal supports color, these commands can be used to assign foreground and background combinations to certain areas. Optionally, an attribute can be given as the last parameter. The syntax is: color area fgcolor bgcolor [attributes] Examples: # Overwrite the default terminal colors to white on black. color default white black # Diff colors color diff-header yellow default color diff-index blue default color diff-chunk magenta default Or in the git configuration files: [tig "color"] # A strange looking cursor line cursor red default underline # UI colors title-blur white blue title-focus white blue bold Area names Valid area names are described below. Note, all names are case-insensitive, and you may use -, _, and . interchangeably, e.g. "Diff-Header", "DIFF_HEADER", and "diff.header" are the same. Color names Valid colors include: white, black, green, magenta, blue, cyan, yellow, red, default. Use default to refer to the default terminal colors. This is recommended for background colors if you are using a terminal with a transparent background. Colors can also be specified using the keywords color0, color1, ..., colorN-1 (N being the number of colors supported by your terminal). This is useful when you remap the colors for your display or want to enable colors supported by 256-color terminals. Attribute names Valid attributes include: normal, blink, bold, dim, reverse, standout, and underline. Note, not all attributes may be supported by the terminal. UI colors The colors and attributes to be used for the text that is not highlighted or that specify the use of the default terminal colors can be controlled by setting the default color option. Table 9. General default Overwrite default terminal colors (see above). cursor The cursor line. status The status window showing info messages. title-focus The title window for the current view. title-blur The title window of any backgrounded view. delimiter Delimiter shown for truncated lines. line-number Line numbers. date The commit date. author The commit author. mode The file mode holding the permissions and type. Table 10. Main view colors main-revgraph The revision graph. main-commit The commit comment. main-head Label of the current branch. main-remote Label of a remote. main-tracked Label of the remote tracked by the current branch. main-tag Label of a signed tag. main-local-tag Label of a local tag. main-ref Label of any other reference. Table 11. Status view stat-head The "On branch"-line. stat-section Status section titles, stat-staged Status flag of staged files. stat-unstaged Status flag of unstaged files. stat-untracked Status flag of untracked files. Table 12. Blame view blame-id The commit ID. Table 13. Tree view tree-head The "Directory /"-line tree-dir The directory name. tree-file The file name. Highlighting Diff markup Options concerning diff start, chunks and lines added and deleted. diff-header, diff-chunk, diff-add, diff-del Enhanced git diff markup Extra diff information emitted by the git diff machinery, such as mode changes, rename detection, and similarity. diff-oldmode, diff-newmode, diff-copy-from, diff-copy-to, diff-rename-from, diff-rename-to, diff-similarity, diff-dissimilarity diff-tree, diff-index Pretty print commit headers Commit diffs and the revision logs are usually formatted using pretty printed headers , unless --pretty=raw was given. This includes lines, such as merge info, commit ID, and author and committer date. pp-author, pp-commit, pp-merge, pp-date, pp-adate, pp-cdate, pp-refs Raw commit header Usually shown when --pretty=raw is given, however commit is pretty much omnipresent. commit, parent, tree, author, committer Commit message Signed-off-by, Acked-by, Reviewed-by and Tested-by lines are colorized. signoff, acked, reviewed, tested Tree markup Colors for information of the tree view. tree-dir, tree-file
