Use a custom merge command

By default, chezmoi uses vimdiff. You can use a custom command by setting the merge.command and merge.args configuration variables. The elements of merge.args are interprested as templates with the variables .Destination, .Source, and .Target containing filenames of the file in the destination state, source state, and target state respectively. For example, to use neovim's diff mode, specify:

    command = "nvim"
    args = ["-d", "{{ .Destination }}", "{{ .Source }}", "{{ .Target }}"]
