[@457] Once in a while I have to use Subversion on a Linux box. Not a big deal, except for diffs. The standard « Next Day Previous Day »
svn diff output is not the most readable. Vim, or more exactly vimdiff, does a terrific job at displaying differences between files side-by-side. Here's a little Bourne shell script I wrote that uses vimdiff to view the differences between a local file and the latest revision in the repository:
Nothing too fancy. It uses
svn cat to get the latest rev, saves it to a temporary file, and opens both files in vimdiff:
The temp file is deleted as soon as vimdiff is quit.
[@389] [@339] This almost sounds like a joke. Our IKEA MALM bed frame fell apart, again. This is the third time an IKEA bed broke on us, in less than a year.
I also just found svncommand.vim, a nifty Subversion integration plugin.
I know we could stand to lose a few pounds, but come on... [@166] It snowed overnight, on Valentine's Day. I think that's a first for me.
We were just looking at my blog to see what we did last year for Valentine's Day, which is also our Wedding Anniversary. Turns out that we went to Anthony's.
What are we doing this year? The same. We are creatures of habit after all.
