Unified Diff download

Added by Sascha Egerer over 9 years ago

Hi,

is there a function to Download a Unified Diff Patch file against revisions or files?
If not, how much work is it to include this?

In other systems like trac this function is availible

That's the kind of feature that I like. I don't find an existing feature request concerning that, don't hesitate to create one.

RE: Unified Diff download - Added by Sascha Egerer over 9 years ago

hm can anybody create this? I'm a totally ruby noob.
And currently i've no time to take a look in ruby coding

Yes - Thomas, Jean-Philippe, anybody: could you point me/us to a good "Learn Ruby in 17 minutes" / "Ruby for Dummies" etc - please :)
Just kidding about the time to learn, obviously, but is there any good resources to get to start learning? Would really like to contribute, but I have no experience with dynamic languages whatsoever - to be honest they are quite frightening (Perl psyched me out once). Even though I come from "assembler" on Dragon32, later (OO)-Pascal and now C# - I hope it's not to late to learn :D

So, any links would be appreciated!

The better way to learn Rails is of course to run Ruby before: have a look to the pick-axe book or the new The Ruby programming language.

There are several tutorials linked to from here:

http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/

Including the so-called "Pick-axe book", which is a great tutorial and reference book for Ruby:

http://www.ruby-doc.org/docs/ProgrammingRuby/

WARNING: Don't read "Why's Poignant Guide To Ruby" until you already know Ruby. It's a bit too terse and fast (for most folks) to get. I have no idea why people recommend it as a starter guide. But it's fun.

Thank you all :)

There was even a "Ruby in Twenty Minutes", 3 minutes from my wish, that's as good as it gets :D

Are there some news for the unified diff download?
Can anybody implement this like in trac?

RE: Unified Diff download - Added by James Turnbull over 9 years ago

I also created a feature request (#1403) for this.

thanks a lot!

how about to add ability to download in zip archive format.

If you want a feature why not log a feature request ticket?

RE: Unified Diff download - Added by Thomas Lecavelier over 9 years ago

James got the point! \o/

I thought that it is similar feature but you're absolutely right, it is different feature at all.
#1443 describes the same request though the feature about zip archive format is not emphasized.
