OS X and Visual Diffs

Posted on 29 April 2008 by Demian Turner

What are people using as a visual diff tool on OS X?  Since my move to the Mac just over 1 year ago this is the one tool I have been unable to replace.

On the linux desktop I used meld for years and miss it greatly.  It’s simple and effective and doesn’t do any more than is required.  I also spent a record amount of time trying to get this package to compile on OS X, something like 2 days once.  Would love to see a screenshot of someone who has it running :-)  Current solution is to launch Parallels and run meld in Fedora, very painful ..

And please don’t suggest FileMerge.app, this program is really anemic compared to meld.
