I wrote this package because I often need to compare two different versions of the same directory tree and ediff-directories is not very helpful in this case. Specially when the directory trees to compare are deep and only a few files have changed.
For further instructions, please see the comentary in the file.
Any comments are welcomed, of course.
There seems to be something wrong with the link above.
Somebody uploaded a file instead of just pasting the elisp into the text area… – AlexSchroeder
Oops, I’ve fixed that with the update to a new version of the package.
I did something similar with the concept of secondary project roots. The example code is pasted in EdiffMode. I shall have a play with your mode :-)
i’ve been looking for this functionality for a long time. getting “function definition is void: eql” errors on diffs (everything i’ve tried so far), even for simple directories that only differ in one line of 1 file. any thoughts ? using emacs 21.2.1
I’d love a recursive directory diff in Emacs that presented a view of two dired buffers side by side, above two file buffers. I’d like to filter the dired buffers in various ways: (a) show all files, (b) show only differing files, (c) show only files added on the lhs/rhs. The file buffers should use ediff-mode.
Even better would be a three-way diff/merge with three file and dired buffers similar to the two way comparison case. – MatthewLMcClure
