I decided to post this in the MOD writers' because it's not really a MOD, but more a tool for MOD authors. I still put [Dev] in the topic because there's no real package yet. You have to use svn to access it. Enough introduction nonsensetalk.
What's a diff renderer?
phpBB includes a modified PEAR diff library, that is used by the automatic updater. This diff lib consists of the "engine", which is the part that takes the files and puts them into an internal diff format. The counterpart are the renderers. These renderers will output the diff in differen't formats. For example unified diff.
And what does the MOD Diff Renderer do?
This tool is basicly a renderer to output the diff as MOD file. It takes an original and a modified phpBB directory, compares the two and automatically generates a MOD file of the changes.
How to get it?
Currently it's only possible to get it via svn. Here is the URL:
Code: Select all
Thanks to Paul who originally came up with this idea but was too slow to get it done.
