go-diff offers algorithms to perform operations required for synchronizing plain text:

  • Compare two texts and return their differences.
  • Perform fuzzy matching of text.
  • Apply patches onto text.

Installation

go get -u github.com/sergi/go-diff/...

The following example compares two texts and writes out the differences to standard output.

package main

import (
	"fmt"

	"github.com/sergi/go-diff/diffmatchpatch"
)

const (
	text1 = "Lorem ipsum dolor."
	text2 = "Lorem dolor sit amet."
)

func main() {
	dmp := diffmatchpatch.New()

	diffs := dmp.DiffMain(text1, text2, false)

	fmt.Println(dmp.DiffPrettyText(diffs))
}
