Previewing diffs with Mercurial and tkdiff
By bytor on Jul 26, 2007
Just a quickie today. I am merging some work I did from a really old Mercurial repository, into a much more recent repository. Because of the big changes that have gone in, I am hand-merging. I needed a way to easily browse diffs from the old work, so that I can manually cut/paste as needed into the new repository. Here is a short script I wrote which uses Zenity to show a list of files with diffs, and when I double-click on the file, it brings up the diffs in tkdiff.
