Project description

Colordiffs is under development, things are bound to be broken. If you would like to help out, start an issue or submit a pull request :)


pip install colordiffs

How to run

git diff HEAD^ | colordiffs | less -r


  1. git diff HEAD^ gets a diff between the current and the previous commit
  2. colordiffs reads a diff from stdin
  3. less -r takes the output of colordiffs and uses less to page it, the -r is required to interpret the terminal escape codes


Python 2.x, 3.x


Support more kinds of git diff output. Right not it supports the most common +++ diffs, but if the diff is for a new file or deletion of file it breaks.
