We use MCUXpresso which is based off of Eclipse Oxygen 3a.

We have IOS users, Windows 10 Users and Linux Users. I'm noticing that every time I just open MCUXpresso that when I do a `git diff` that I have a bunch of at the end of "some" of the lines.

I believe that is some sort of new line, but I'm not sure where to turn this off/on or whatever I need to do to turn that off.

Can someone please point me to a config setting that I'm obviously missing.

With Oomph we have a Git clone task, and we make sure that we always set the core autocrlf property to true:

Perhaps some details here will help you understand why that's important:

I believe this property can be set in your global Git configuration in the file system, assuming EGit finds that. In any case, you can configure it globally in Window -> Preferences -> Team -> Git -> Configuration as well.

If you see these undesirable line ending differences on Linux already, you have already checked Windows-style line endings into your repository. You will need to "repair" your repository by recommitting those files with proper Linux-style endings.

You might want to consider creating an Oomph Project setups for your team so that the whole process of creating a properly configured development environment is automated:

You can see examples how such a setup is used here:
