Compare files

Postby brick » Thu Apr 26, 2012 8:35 pm


Editra is really an amazing piece of software. I've been looking for a long time for a cross-platform (windows/linux) editor like this.

The only thing i miss is an easy way to compare files. The Projects plugin is not really suited for that.

Thanks for your great work.

Do you mean to be able to do a diff of any two arbitrary files on your hard disk an not necessarily of two revisions of one file in source control?

The project plugin offers the latter of being able to diff two revisions of a file from source control.

The former has probably not been implemented in any plugins since most good diff viewer programs already offer tight integration with the systems file manager adding diff options to context menus.

There is one related request in the plugin project pages issue tracker ( ... ail?id=169).

How would you invision such a feature to work from within the text editor itself? May spark some interest or direction for such a feature to be developed.
