Introducing UDiff comparison and diff tool for Umbraco

Moriyama UDiff allows you to compare an Umbraco webroot to an Umbraco release zip and extract the differences.

UDiff can be used for the following purposes:

UDiff works well in combination with uSync to move customisations of Umbraco amongst teams via source control.

UDiff prevents the need to version control the Umbraco core files - which makes your repository more lightweight.

UDiff ships as a command line tool with the following options:

  • -q, --quiet                Run in quiet mode
  • -s, --simulate             Simulate, don't copy any files
  • -u, --unsafe               Copy unsafe modifications to output (e.g.  modified core Umbraco files)
  • -o, --output=VALUE         Output directory
  • -c, --clean                Clean Output directory (WARNING: deletes all files)
  • -e, --exclude=VALUE        semi colon delimited list of Regexes to ignore
  • --project=VALUE        Your web project directory
  • --umbracosource=VALUE  An Umbraco release (directory, or URL of release zip)
  • -h, --help                 show help message and exit

This project is open for collaboration - we welcome your feedback.
