Is there any possibility to compare opened files?

dafi | Wed, 2008-10-08 07:49

Doesn't exist a simple way to use opened files.

I want to add a feature that choose files based on some rule (eg same file name)

I'd second that question about comparing opened files, that would rule. Also, it would be great to be able to compare buffers that haven't been saved (either have unsaved changes, or that are from scratch and haven't been saved at all yet).

Now it is possible to compare open files selecting them from File Tab context menu.

dafi | Sat, 2008-11-29 04:16

Now can be installed on Ko5 without tweaking

In 5.0.x versions, this extension doesn't install. In the install.rdf file:


I believe these should be switched.

Bad copy and past.

My evaluation IDE licence has been expired so I can't test it

I've released 1.0.2 with correct version order

Installed this extension.

It works well, but line numbers are shows only from 1 to 99. Is it a bug?

dafi | Tue, 2009-10-20 07:16

I can see more that 99 lines without problems.

Have you resized the linu number column header?

Thanks, dafi, for the answer.

Have you resized the linu number column header?

I would like to check, but I do not know what it is.

this is the error i have got when i tried to compare two files remotely

[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520001 (NS_ERROR_FILE_UNRECOGNIZED_PATH) [nsILocalFile.initWithPath]" nsresult: "0x80520001 (NS_ERROR_FILE_UNRECOGNIZED_PATH)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://visualdiffer/content/commonUtil.js :: anonymous :: line 90" data: no]

thanks for this great extension.

dafi | Sun, 2010-01-10 01:27

I'm sorry but at this time is not possible to compare remote files.

I plan to add this feature only if the community largely adopts VisualDiffer.

Any plan to support 6.*


dafi | Thu, 2011-01-20 22:33

No, due to low user feedback I've dropped support for VisualDiffer for Komodo.

Now I work on a big enhancement for Mac OSX
