rvm_plugin_diff

Have you ever edited any of the plugins you have installed? If so, then rvm_plugin_diff is meant for you.

This plugin helps you do the following:

  • Find the changes you made (color diff, inspired by dev.textpattern.com).
  • Download the changes in unified diff format (a patch which can be sent to the plugin developer).
  • View the plugin code with line numbers at the beginning of each line, so you can find errors easier.

The goal of this plugin is to make it easier to feed back bugfixes to the original authors of plugins. It’s often easy to fix a bug, but I found it hard to find what exactly I had changed afterwards (having edited around half the plugins in use at textpattern.org), so I had some fun writing this plugin and learned a lot about how (unified) diff and patch works.

Note: the patches this plugin creates, use UNIX-style line endings. If the original code was developed on a different platform, you may have to convert the line endings before applying the patch.
