The merge tool that understands your code

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. JavaScript, please!

    C# is nice, but JavaScript rules the front-end :)

        • Merge project files

          That'd be nice if you'd help to merge project files (csproj, vbproj) that are generated by the IDE.

          • Work amazing in Visual Studio 2012

            I really want this merge tool to work inside of Visual Studio 2012. I live in Visual Studio all day long...and if merging can become better via calls to the TFS Build process for gated check-ins, I'd use this tool in a heart beat and sign it's high praises to every developer i meet.

              • F# Support

                C#, F#, and Javascript are the 3 languages I use at work so having F# support would be awesome!

                • C support

                  The C programming language is it's own thing! And implementing it would be way easier than C++, with all its object-orientation and template metaprogramming and multiple inheritances! Let's make this happen!

                  • XAML support

                    It would be great to have XAML support.

                    There's a few common formatting changes that can be made to XAML documents without affecting the semantics but that do affect traditional merge tools quite badly. It would be great not to have to deal with those by hand.

                    The most common changes are probably reordering element attributes, and moving attributes onto separate lines vs. having > 1 attribute on the same line.

                    There is then the equivalent issue to what you have been talking about already: re-ordering and re-arranging elements in the file. Note that XAML has an extra way of…

                        • Support merging across files

                          Right now the samples on the website about splitting up a class are a bit unrealistic since they all include splitting the class up but keeping it all in the same file. In reality, we often move code to different files and still want to merge. SemanticMerge will be revolutionary if it can solve this problem.

                              • CSS / LESS support

                                Order may sometimes be significant in CSS, but that's pretty rare in practice, I think. (Unlike F# and SQL, where order is very significant, and for which traditional differs may be better for.)

                                • Use external syntax/type checker/compiler to test if merge result is correct

                                  For strongly typed languages like Haskell (and probably for some others too) it would make sense to have the ability to check the merge result with the compiler or some other external tool and to fall back on a manual merge if it does not compile.

                                      I want to merge each file in a directory (i.e. for different branches of the same code). I should be able to choose the files that I want to merge with filters (i.e. only source files, not images, etc).
