semanticmerge

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".
(thinking…)

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

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

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

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

  1. Matlab support

    I'm doing some heavy duty Matlab refactoring, which is a realm of development that often takes place in realms outside of widely accepted software practices (http://programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/43733/who-organizes-your-matlab-code?rq=1). Having this sort of language aware difference checker would have greatly aided all the cross file, cleanup, rearchitecting refactoring I had to conduct.

  2. Drop Machine Specific Ids

    I use a VM and my license keeps getting made invalid and I have to raise a support ticket to get it fixed. This makes it unusable for me

  3. Ctrl+Z undo support whilst doing a manual merge

    When doing a manual merge you might be experimenting, so undoing a line change is invaluable.

  4. Support git mergetool/difftool with --dir-diff option - multiple files at once

    SemanticMerge opens up files one at a time when I issue git difftool/mergetool commands. This is a pain since with several files when the context is important and moving back and forth between files is often necessary. Git's option --dir-diff was designed to address this - but it doesn't work with SemanticMerge. Beyond Compare supports this and as such I find myself using it more, much as I prefer the SemanticMerge UI.

  6. C++/CLI

    While you're at it with adding C++ support why not go a bit further and support C++/CLI code? We use both regularly and would love to use semanticmerge with all our code.

  7. Add ability to merge changes in a text diff.

    When viewing a text diff of the current and previous versions of a file it'd be nice to be able to easily move changes from the previous file back into the current one.

  8. Ability to view github.com pull requests

    It's not necessarily to work just with github.com pull requests. I'd like to see all code changes between two branches in one window to review my/colleagues changes.

  10. Open multiple diffs as tabs

    When I go to diff several changes from a single changelist in perforce, I can launch a diff on the whole changelist.

    Currently this shows up as several windows, which is a little unwieldy to switch between easily - can semanticmerge be set to have a tabbed interface for multiple diffs / merges, much like beyond compare currently does?

  11. Enlarge Close/Exit Button to Far Top-Right Corner

    On Windows, the close button ("x") does not extend all the way to the top right corner. This can cause me to "miss" the button and just click on the title bar. Can you enlarge this button to extend all the way to the top-right pixel. This is generally a good UI practice. Thanks!

  12. Add another order of semantic differences

    Currently semantic differences are grouped by type (added, changed, deleted), but sometimes it's not preferred way to see changes. Sometimes preferred way to see changes is in order they are located in file.

  13. Add ability to revert a changed block

    When reviewing changes it would be useful to revert modified blocks in the code (as you can do in p4merge for instance).

  17. Add version info + check for update button somewhere in the opening screen.

    Title says it all. I read that there is a new release but no easy way to check what version I have (must navigate to the exe), not to force an update check.

  19. Could this system be integrated into Crucible/FishEye from Atlassian?

    It would be great if this could be included in the Atlassian code review system... it would make code reviews much more manageable.

  20. SCM System Integration

    It would nice to be able to see:

    - Branch names of files
    - Log message
    - Blame when requested
    - Log of both versions when requested
    - Self installation of Merge tool into Git

    I believe Git support is crucial, followed by others.
