Screenshot of Eclipse Patch Viewer

Eclipse IDE, RCS, JavaScript, Bookmarklet.

Read an Eclipse IDE workspace code patch on a web browser.

Eclipse Patch Viewer is a bookmarklet that adds background colors to the line differences to make it easier to read.

Installation

Just drag and drop the "Eclipse Patch Viewer" link below to your browser's bookmarks bar.

🔥 Eclipse Patch Viewer

Usage

  1. Open up a code patch .txt file in your browser.
  2. Click on the "Eclipse Patch Viewer" bookmark.

Background

I developed this bookmarklet because I often read code patches on a web browser before a I submit a ticket for code review. Reading a code patch as a plain text file is difficult and takes more time.

Initially developed and shared this small tool on a few of my colleagues but now I released it publicly.

This tool was previously known internally as "Ecdiff".

  const $pre = document.getElementsByTagName('pre')[0];

  const { formatted } = $body.dataset;
  const noRCSfileString = !$body.innerHTML.includes('RCS file');
  const noPreTag = !$pre;

  if (formatted || noPreTag || noRCSfileString) {
    return;

  $pre.innerHTML = formattedLines.join('');
