QShowDiff is simple tool for colourful visualisation of diffs. QShowDiff was created because I was missing some tool which would do only this one thing. It's true that there are programs such as KDiff3 or Kompare, however these programs are too complicated for a task as simple as viewing diffs.
QShowDiff does only one thing and that is a visualisation of diff. It does not compare two files or directories - for that there are many tools that surely do the task very well. And that is the reason why QShowDiff was created. I needed a program which will do only one thing - colorful visualisation of diffs. Nothing more and nothing less.
QShowDiff is able to visualise diff generated from various version control systems such as Git, Subversion or Bazaar and is also able to recognize them by itself.
