I'm currently in the process of migrating from trac to redmine, and I'm missing some very useful features that exists in trac repo viewer:

  • view diff in change log, i.e. when clicking on a changed log, it should be possible to view the diff on the same screen (instead of clicking again, and back to change log).
  • missing link from activity log directly to latest version ( one can only see the diff log, in order to see the file you have to go to the repo path and click view inside the file).
  • be able to toggle and ignore: Blank lines, Case changes, White space changes
  • "remember" use preference for side by side or inline diff.
  • be able to click "next" change set from the diff screen (best if diff could be merged with revision page (i.e. after cliocking activity --> revision # --> show log + diff at the same page)
  • view files that have changed in the activity log

Thanks a lot for a great product.

Hi Ohad,

  • I don't want "view diff in change log" by default, because diffing is an intensive process that I don't want to trigger unless required.
  • For "missing link from activity log", there are some patches around for that. I also think they could be applied safely, although there maybe are good reason not to do so.

Is there a way to do a whole directoy diff?, it would be great to view changes between branches.
