ObjDiff

This node library implements a very simple diff algorithm for javascript/json objects.

An example diff object looks like:

> objdiff({a:2,c:1},{b:2,c:2})
{ a: 
   { '$changed': true,
     '-': 2 },
  c: 
   { '$changed': true,
     '-': 1,
     '+': 2 },
  b: 
   { '$changed': true,
     '+': 2 } }

every value, that has changed is represented by an object with the key-value pair $changed: true.

Installation

Node

# npm install objdiff

Browser

# git clone git://github.com/Gottox/node-objdiff.git
# cd node-objdiff
# make build

This compiles a browserbuild version to dist/objdiff

Usage

Node

var objdiff = require('objdiff').objdiff
objdiff({a:1}, {b:2});
