diff

Generate a diff and output Github-style HTML for it.

>>> import ghdiff
>>> from six import print_
>>> print_(ghdiff.diff("a\nb", "b\nb"))
<style type="text/css">
...
</style>
<div class="diff">
    <div class="control">@@&nbsp;-1,2&nbsp;+1,2&nbsp;@@
    </div>
    <div class="delete">-a</div>
    <div class="">&nbsp;b</div>
    <div class="insert">+b</div>
</div>

The css option controls whether or not the output includes CSS.

>>> print_(ghdiff.diff("blah blah blah\nb", "blah zxqq blah\nb", css=False))
<div class="diff">
    <div class="control">@@&nbsp;-1,2&nbsp;+1,2&nbsp;@@
    </div>
    <div class="delete">-blah&nbsp;<span class="highlight">blah</span>&nbsp;blah</div>
    <div class="insert">+blah&nbsp;<span class="highlight">zxqq</span>&nbsp;blah</div>
    <div class="">&nbsp;b</div>
</div>

diff accepts lists of strings representing lines as well.

>>> print_(ghdiff.diff(["blah blah blah", "b"], ["blah zxqq blah", "b"]))
<style type="text/css">
...
</style>
<div class="diff">
    <div class="control">@@&nbsp;-1,2&nbsp;+1,2&nbsp;@@
    </div>
    <div class="delete">-blah&nbsp;<span class="highlight">blah</span>&nbsp;blah</div>
    <div class="insert">+blah&nbsp;<span class="highlight">zxqq</span>&nbsp;blah</div>
    <div class="">&nbsp;b</div>
</div>

IPython magic

ghdiff also works as an IPython magic:

In[1]: %load_ext ghdiff

In[2]: %ghdiff var1 var2

See a notebook example

colorize

colorize takes an existing unified diff and outputs Github-style markup.

>>> print_(ghdiff.colorize("""\
