hg-diff - a GUI program to browse mercurial revisions

Author: Goetz Pfeiffer (goetzpf@googlemail.com)


hg-diff is a program to browse and compare mercurial revisions.

Arbitrary revisions can be selected for comparison. The changes between the selected two revisions are then displayed by calling an external difference viewer that also has a graphical user interface.

By this, hg-diff makes it easy to explore the different revisions in a mercurial repository or to see what changes were done in the working copy directory.

Introduction and documentation


Here is the directory with tar and zip files:

download hg-diff

Repository access

You can either access the software repository by a web interface:

browse hg-diff repository.

Or, if you plan to extend or improve hg-diff I would recommend that you get a clone of the repository with this command:

hg clone http://hg.code.sf.net/p/hg-diff/code hg-diff-code

You can then commit changes in your own repository copy.

If you plan to share these changes you can create a mercurial bundle and send it to my e-mail address.
