GumTree

An awesome code differencing tool.

Status

Build and Test GumTree

Description

GumTree is a syntax-aware diff tool. It improves text-based diff tools in two important ways:

  • the edit actions are always aligned with the syntax,
  • it can detect moved or renamed elements in addition of deleted and inserted code.

Documentation

To use GumTree, you can start by consulting the Getting Started page from our wiki. If you have a question to ask, please use GitHub's discussions instead of opening an issue.

Citing GumTree

We are researchers, therefore if you use GumTree in an academic work we would be really glad if you cite our seminal paper using the following bibtex:
