RFE: Editor 'diff' and Project Description

Postby iwbnwif » Fri Sep 01, 2017 1:32 am

Hi, I have a couple of requests for enhancements that I think may be useful:

1. Would it be possible to diff compare between two editor buffers (tabs) even if they have not been saved as files? I quite often have a use case where I want to quickly compare 2 pieces of code or data and would like to paste them into new buffers, then run a quick diff.

2. Please can projects have a 'description' as part of there setup. I know I can add a notes file within the project, but it would be nice to just hover over the project name in the tree and see a short description of that project (I have a lot of old test / snippet projects that I forget what they do!! :oops: )

Thanks for considering!

I'll chime in that I'm totally a fan of the idea of a description field for projects for exactly the same reason.

Hi,
1. Would it be possible to diff compare between two editor buffers (tabs) even if they have not been saved as files?

This is now implemented in git head. It's also now possible to diff a modified editor against the unmodified version.

Regards,

David
