As of now, only the 'match' capabilities of DiffMatchPatch have been implemented. Contributions are welcome to add support for Diff and Patch as well. Matching has been added as a module such as RDiffMatchPatch::Match.
The plan is that if you want only a specific functionality to be mixed in (to the String class for example), then you only include that particular module.
class String include RDiffMatchPatch::Match end
When the entire library has been ported, you can get all the functionality by simply including the various RDiffMatchPatch modules, once they are implemented.
class String include RDiffMatchPatch::Match include RDiffMatchPatch::Patch end
The module can be included like so:
class String include RDiffMatchPatch::Match end "abc".fuzzy_match("abc") # => 0
