Changes text sync app
Skorpiostech today unveiled Changes 1.0, an application designed to perform directory comparison and file differencing functions. Changes allows coders to ensure synchronicity between files and folders, designed to replace Apple's FileMerge utility. Changes features a CLI utility, a TextMate bundle, BBEdit and Text Wrangler menu scripts, Xcode integration, and F-Script support. Skorpiostech is selling Changes for $40 from its website, and requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
Changes also supports Subversion, CVS, Mercurial, git, Perforce, and other SCM systems. There is also optional support for SFTP shares via MacFuse, allowing for transparent remote file access. The developer states that Changes can be used by writers to keep large folders of text in syncronicity.
Changes takes advantage of Core Animation and Quick Look to provide a smooth workflow.
