Tracking SQLite Database Changes in Git (via) A neat trick from Garrit Franke that I hadn’t seen before: you can teach “git diff” how to display human readable versions of the differences between binary files with a specific extension using the following:
git config diff.sqlite3.binary true
git config diff.sqlite3.textconv “echo .dump | sqlite3”
That way you can store binary files in your repo but still get back SQL diffs to compare them.
I still worry about the efficiency of storing binary files in Git, since I expect multiple versions of a text text file to compress together better.
