CFX_CompareHTML ColdFusion HTML diff custom tag

Following on from my last post I have released Version 1 of my ColdFusion HTML Diff Custom Tag, CFX_CompareHTML.

When we wrote Teamwork Project Manager one of my jobs was to compare versions of Notebooks which were marked up using HTML.

I did lots of searching and found Diff.cfc which did a line for line comparison but did not represent the changes in HTML format, it only output the differences line-by-line with all the HTML viewable.

Diff.cfc is perfect for text or source code but we needed something a little bit more user-friendly.

A great start on this was DaisyDiff,  a Java library that diffs (compares) HTML files.

The problem with this was that I had to use CFExecute and some timeouts, writing to the drive etc to get some results. It soon became a nightmare on large files so I decided the best thing to do was to build a CFX tag around the main components of DaisyDiff.

CFX_CompareHTML was born.

You can call the tag using :

<cfx_CompareHTML left="Some HTML content" right="Some more HTML Content">

The tag can be downloaded from here :
