Description[edit | edit source]

BlueSpiceVisualDiff enables users to easily compare two versions of an article.

Usage / Features[edit | edit source]

There are three diff views:

1. Visual: The output is done as a reader sees it, in an integrated view. Changes are highlighted in color: Supplements green, red strokes.

2. WikiText: The output is done in WikiCode in an integrated view. Changes are highlighted in color: Supplements green, red strokes.

3. Classic: The output is in WikiCode. Old and new text face each other in two columns.

  • You can switch between the views via tabs.
  • The Java command-line tool DaisyDiff creates a unified diff from two revisions rendered in HTML. This will be displayed on a SpecialPage.
  • Additional information is displayed, eg the compared revisions
  • A navigation to the previous difference is displayed. The behavior is similar to that of MediaWiki.
  • You can jump from one change to the next via flyout.
  • Wherever MediaWiki links to the diff view, the special page should be used instead. In particular consider:
    • Left on version page.
    • Links in the ArticleInfo bar.
    • Links from notification emails from MediaWiki.
    • Links from notification emails from BlueSpice.
    • Links from the PDF view.

Technical information[edit | edit source]

Configuration[edit | edit source]

The extension VisualDiff is based on the HTML-Diff tool DaisyDiff and shall give a quick and visually appealing overview of the changes in revisions of a wiki article. The changes are displayed in a so called Unified-Diff and therefore in a document and not like usual in two columns. The normal link to the diff view of MediaWiki is overwritten by a link to a special page. The article revision (oldid) works as a basis for the comparison. This also defines the changes like "added" and "deleted".

Rights (permissions)[edit | edit source]

To use VisualDiff, the user needs to have reading rights for the respective namespace.
