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. CLI/text-based merge support

    I spend the majority of may day at the command line. It would be nice if this tool could be used from within a terminal.

  5. Coffeescript support please

    Been using coffeescript for back end and front end work and would be good to support that as well. Could probably use the python or ruby modules as a base (once they have been implemented) or better yet, do use coffeescript as a base for ruby and python :)

  7. JavaScript, please!

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

  9. Add support of merge xml files

    You should now that merging a xml file (or a visual studio resource file) is a pain :(

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. support for java property files and other simple configuration syntaxes.

    it would be nice to support some micro-languages like java property files
    which sometime create merge silly merge conflicts with traditional tools.

  14. Cloud based merging

    May not work well with existing tool sets, immediately, but setup a service where rules and such can get set per client, and users have a way to merge up files. This would solve issues with clients for different platforms.

  15. 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.

  16. Diff detects comment and part of method as a diff unit

    When two files are compared, the specific changes are highlighted with a darker color, inside the different blocks. This is useful, but when presented with different blocks, it may behave weirdly.

    Since I cannot post images online, I have 7zipped the files to reproduce with the result image in a protected file under my domain.

    The files can be found at this address: http://tests.alphasmanifesto.com/Merge-WrongDiffBlockHighligted.7z
    The password for the file is "mergebegins" (without quotes).

  17. Find option does not perform search on both files of diff tool

    The Find options only searches the strings on the active file. (Although there is no indication of which file is that.)

  18. Encoding: "none"?

    An option available for reading file in a specific encoding is to have it set to "none". What does this mean?

    "None" label is confusing since every data stream needs to be interpreted with an encoding, so it is for sure that an encoding is present at some point.

    If this is a shortcut to a specific encoding detection, then "Automatic" could be a better label for it.
