How to use

To load correctly in the Browser you always need to include the stylesheet in the final HTML.

Import the stylesheet

<!-- CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dist/diff2html.css">

You can also refer to it from a CDN like CDNJS.

Browser Library

Import the stylesheet and the library code

<!-- CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dist/diff2html.css">

<!-- Javascripts -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/diff2html.js"></script>

It will now be available as a global variable named Diff2Html.

var diffHtml = Diff2Html.getPrettyHtml(
  '<Unified Diff String>',
  {inputFormat: 'diff', showFiles: true, matching: 'lines', outputFormat: 'side-by-side'}
);
document.getElementById("destination-elem-id").innerHTML = diffHtml;

Node Module

let diff2html = require("diff2html").Diff2Html

Angular

  • Typescript
// import diff2html
import {Diff2Html} from 'diff2html'

API

Intermediate Json From Git Word Diff Output

getJsonFromDiff(input: string, configuration?: Options): Result[]

Pretty HTML diff

getPrettyHtml(input: any, configuration?: Options): string

Check out the [src/diff2html.d.ts](./src/diff2html.d.ts) for a complete API definition in TypeScript.

Check out the [docs/demo.html](./docs/demo.html) for a demo example.

Configuration

The HTML output accepts a Javascript object with configuration. Possible options:

  • inputFormat: the format of the input data: 'diff' or 'json', default is 'diff'
  • outputFormat: the format of the output data: 'line-by-line' or 'side-by-side', default is 'line-by-line'
  • showFiles: show a file list before the diff: true or false, default is false
  • diffStyle: show differences level in each line: word or char, default is word
  • matching: matching level: 'lines' for matching lines, 'words' for matching lines and words or 'none', default is none
  • matchWordsThreshold: similarity threshold for word matching, default is 0.25
  • matchingMaxComparisons: perform at most this much comparisons for line matching a block of changes, default is 2500
  • maxLineSizeInBlockForComparison: maximum number os characters of the bigger line in a block to apply comparison, default is 200
  • maxLineLengthHighlight: only perform diff changes highlight if lines are smaller than this, default is 10000
  • templates: object with previously compiled templates to replace parts of the html
  • rawTemplates: object with raw not compiled templates to replace parts of the html
  • renderNothingWhenEmpty: render nothing if the diff shows no change in its comparison: true or false, default is false > For more information regarding the possible templates look into src/templates

** Diff2HtmlUI Helper Options **

  • synchronisedScroll: scroll both panes in side-by-side mode: true or false, default is false

For more information regarding the possible templates look into src/templates

Diff2HtmlUI Helper

Simple wrapper to ease simple tasks in the browser such as: code highlight and js effects

  • Invoke Diff2html
  • Inject output in DOM element
  • Enable collapsible file summary list
  • Enable syntax highlight of the code in the diffs

How to use

Mandatory HTML resource imports

<!-- CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dist/diff2html.css">

<!-- Javascripts -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/diff2html.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/diff2html-ui.js"></script>

Init

var diff2htmlUi = new Diff2HtmlUI({diff: diffString});
// or
var diff2htmlUi = new Diff2HtmlUI({json: diffJson});

Draw

diff2htmlUi.draw('html-target-elem', {inputFormat: 'json', showFiles: true, matching: 'lines'});

Syntax Highlight

Add the dependencies. Choose one color scheme, and add the main highlight code. Note that the stylesheet for the color scheme must come before the main diff2html stylesheet. If your favourite language is not included in the default package also add its javascript highlight file.

<!-- Stylesheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/highlight.js/9.13.1/styles/github.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dist/diff2html.css">

<!-- Javascripts -->
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.3/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/highlight.js/9.13.1/highlight.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/highlight.js/9.13.1/languages/scala.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/diff2html-ui.js"></script>

Invoke the Diff2HtmlUI helper

$(document).ready(function() {
    var diff2htmlUi = new Diff2HtmlUI({diff: lineDiffExample});
    diff2htmlUi.draw('#line-by-line', {inputFormat: 'json', showFiles: true, matching: 'lines'});
    diff2htmlUi.highlightCode('#line-by-line');
});

Collapsable File Summary List

Add the dependencies.

<!-- Javascripts -->
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.3/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/diff2html-ui.js"></script>

Invoke the Diff2HtmlUI helper

$(document).ready(function() {
    var diff2htmlUi = new Diff2HtmlUI({diff: lineDiffExample});
    diff2htmlUi.draw('#line-by-line', {inputFormat: 'json', showFiles: true, matching: 'lines'});
    diff2htmlUi.fileListCloseable('#line-by-line', false);
});

Troubleshooting

1. Out of memory or Slow execution

Causes:

  • Big files
  • Big lines

Fix:

  • Disable the line matching algorithm, by setting the option {"matching": "none"} when invoking diff2html
