Installation

Package Control (Easiest)

  1. Using Package Control, install FileDiffs

  2. Install keymaps for the commands (see Example.sublime-keymap for my preferred keys)

Sublime Text 3

  1. Open the Sublime Text Packages folder

    • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Packages/
    • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 3/Packages/
    • Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 3/Packages/ or ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages
  2. Clone this repo

    # Over SSH
    git clone git@github.com:colinta/SublimeFileDiffs
    
    # Over HTTPS
    git clone https://github.com/colinta/SublimeFileDiffs.git
    
  3. Install keymaps for the commands (see Example.sublime-keymap for my preferred keys)

Sublime Text 2

  1. Open the Sublime Text 2 Packages folder
  2. Clone this repo, but use the st2 branch

    # Over SSH
    git clone -b st2 git@github.com:colinta/SublimeFileDiffs
    
    # Over HTTPS
    git clone -b st2 https://github.com/colinta/SublimeFileDiffs.git
    

Add External Diff Tool (optional)

(IMPORTANT: You might need to make a symlink (e.g. in /usr/local/bin) pointing to the command line tool of your external diff tool)

  1. Preferences > Package Settings > FileDiffs > Settings - Default

  2. Uncomment one of the examples or write your own command to open external diff tool.

This command may need to be a full path (e.g. /usr/local/bin/ksdiff), if the command isn't in your PATH.

It supports:

  • A generic setting FileDiffs.sublime-settings which could be overloaded for each parameter in a platform specific configuration FileDiffs ($platform).sublime-settings in the Settings - User
  • Environment variable expansions for cmd parameter in the settings

Commands

file_diff_menu: Shows a menu to select one of the file_diff commands. If you use the bindings in Example.sublime-keymap, this is bound to ctrl+shift+d.

The rest of the commands do not need to be bound (accessible from the menu):

file_diff_clipboard: Shows the diff of the current file or selection(s) and the clipboard (the clipboard is considered the “new” file unless reverse is True)

file_diff_selections: Shows the diff of the first and second selected regions. The file_diff_menu command checks for exactly two regions selected, otherwise it doesn't display this command.

file_diff_saved: Shows the diff of the current file or selection(s) and the saved file.

file_diff_file: Shows the diff of the current file or selection(s) and a file that is in the current project.

file_diff_tab: Shows the diff of the current file or selection(s) and an open file (aka a file that has a tab).

file_diff_previous: Shows the diff of the current file or selection(s) and the previous activated file.
