patching files with python
Patchit is an MIT Licensed unified diff parsing and merge tool written in Python for anyone who needs a finer grain of control over unified diff content and to merge the diff with an arbitrary stream of lines.
The motivation for this package arose from the
To install patchit just run from the root of the project:
$ python setup.py install
Tests are located at the tests.py file. In order to test your new contribution to patchit just run from your shell
$ python setup.py test
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it much better myself. Therefore I’m asking anyone who is interested in a patch functionality for Python to improve this package and hand in patches by mail or pull requests.
The preferred method of development is a test driven approach and following the nvie git flow branching model. Please be so kind to bear these things in mind when handing in improvements. Thank you very much.
