npm install different

From GitHub:

cd path/to/node_modules
git clone git://github.com/jennazee/different.git
cd different
npm install .

Usage

var different = require('different');

//parse diff from URL with options
different.parseDiff({url: 'https://github.com/jennazee/different/commit/6b7c205aa17e70f4958e8a7c20fccac8318480ff.diff'}, function(diff) {console.log(diff)});
