Projects / Meld


Meld is a visual diff and merge tool. It integrates with most version control systems. The diff viewer lets you edit files in place (diffs update dynamically), and a middle column shows detailed changes and allows merges. The margins show location of changes for easy browsing, and it also features a tabbed interface that allows you to open many diffs at once.

            Nice tool...
            Meld is very well-done. Visually polished and very useful for text file comparisons. Lots of nice little touches...
