Diffs are available from the callback but they are currently discarded:

We can retrieve the diff before it is discarded around here:

The diff printed by Ansible looks like this:

TASK [template] **********************************************************************************************************************
--- before: /tmp/foo
+++ after: /home/fedora/.ansible/tmp/ansible-local-25447850rn27v/tmpu1ngsu7a/foo.j2
@@ -1 +1 @@
-this is a roary
+this is a roar

And this is the format in which the data is available from the callback:

[{'before_header': '/tmp/foo', 'before': 'this is a roary\n', 'after_header': '/home/fedora/.ansible/tmp/ansible-local-25447850rn27v/tmpu1ngsu7a/foo.j2', 'after': 'this is a roar\n'}]

It seems like this would be an addition to the result model. A diff column which would default to null. From a web client perspective, the diff could be displayed if there is one.
