Diffs two Python files at the bytecode level.

Project Description

pydiff diffs Python code at the bytecode level. This is useful for checking for changes to the actual code structure while ignoring formatting changes.


From pip:

$ pip install --upgrade pydiff


import os, sys
def main():

    x = len(sys.argv) + 100

    y            = x+77

import os
import sys

def main():
    x = len(sys.argv) + 101
    y = x + 77

$ pydiff
