Integrate third-party diff tool (KDiff3) with Sublime Text

Integrate third-party diff tool (KDiff3) with Sublime Text

Postby dvorobiov on Thu Jan 26, 2012 11:47 am

Hi,
I am a new user of Sublime Text 2 currently evaluating its features. I'm not very happy with FileDiffs so can you tell me please, if it's possible to integrate any third-party diff merge tool, say, KDiff3 with ST2? Is it possible to create an appropriate plugin or something? It should work like FileDiffs but instead of opening a new tab with compare result it will run KDiff3 with appropriate params?

Thank you!

There is already a plugin in Package Control calling WinMerge.

It's easy to start from it and adapt for your need.

Adding an optional external diff merge tool in FileDiffs plugin could be a nice improvement.

Thanks for WinMerge info! I am using it now on my Windows machine. Nevetheless I also use Linux so I think I ll need to write some plugin for KDiff3.
