Difftastic: A diff that understands syntax
11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Mar 2022
Cargo is Rust's build tool/package manager and can be installed easily using rustup. But I would probably suggest the difftastic maintainers add some prebuilt binaries to the releases
(I have an example workflow here if anyone from there is interested https://github.com/conradludgate/wordle/blob/main/.github/wo...)
What are some alternatives?
deadgrep - fast, friendly searching with ripgrep and Emacs
tree-sitter - An incremental parsing system for programming tools
json-diff - Structural diff for JSON files
hdiff - Hash-based Diffing for AST's
difftastic - a structural diff that understands syntax 🟥🟩
delta - A syntax-highlighting pager for git, diff, and grep output
helpful - A better Emacs *help* buffer
