There's also delta, like diff-so-fancy but with many more options.

I just recently learned that there’s a --gui option for git difftool, which is nice because I use Kaleidoscope for heavy diffs (and merges too with git mergetool) but recently picked up delta  for quicker diffing in the terminal. Now I can have both easily.

Best diff config for vim in 2021?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/vim | 17 Jul 2021
Since newer diff algorithms are merged into vim and there are tools specifically designed for diffing two files, I wonder what is the best vimdiff option? Here is mine: vim " vimdiff configs if has("patch-8.1.0360") set diffopt=filler,internal,algorithm:histogram,indent-heuristic endif There is also delta which seem to have a smarter algorithm. Is there a way to use delta in vim instead?

Difftastic: Syntax-aware structured diff tool
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Jul 2021
Thanks, this is good advice. There are some super featureful diff tools out there. For example, https://github.com/dandavison/delta does a line-based diff but it also syntax highlights its output.
I'm hoping that defining syntax in a separate TOML file will let end users extend difftastic for their own languages/config files. I want to keep difftastic small and manageable.

This with the UI from https://github.com/banga/git-split-diffs would make the perfect CLI diff tool!

I wrote https://github.com/banga/git-split-diffs mainly to scratch an itch about not having side by side git diffs in the terminal, then ended up adding more fancy features like syntax highlighting and it got somewhat popular.

I actually tried to automate the screenshots for this project's readme using GitHub actions, but struggled to get it to produce the same quality screenshots as my local machine. This is the script I use for now, which has to be invoked manually: https://github.com/banga/git-split-diffs/blob/main/scripts/g...10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 May 2021
The slowest operation is syntax highlighting: https://github.com/banga/git-split-diffs#performance. I have a PR out to improve that somewhat.
Good point about the themes, I'll add one. I'm hoping to make it easy to customize individual theme colors so you could unset the background colors, for example
