Provide unified diffs via the REST API (BB-2923)

Kevin Formsma avatarKevin Formsma created an issue

It would be great to have a way to access the unified diff for a file between two revisions. Right now to generate a diff, I have to download the raw file for both revisions and perform it manually. It would save bandwidth for all parties to have this directly accessible.

Perhaps something like<user</<repo>/diff/<rev1>/<rev2>/mydir/myfile would work.

    I second this!

    Am going to implement the same kludge as Arothian..

    Was surprised to see that it wasn't implemented already.

    I am glad that you've got an API, of course. :)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
