#181 closed enhancement (duplicate)

It would be good to have a "diff" view in the preview, like Wikimedia has.

When you edit a page on something running the Wikimedia software, you have the choice of committing your edits, previewing how the page will look once your edits have gone in, and viewing the differences between the current version of the page and your proposed edits. OpenGuides can do the first two, but it would be very nice if it could do the third as well.

Andrew's finished his to-do list, so we looked at the enhancement list and he picked out this one to have a look at next.

I have looked at this. I think it would need a change to Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::Diff to accept the unsaved version of text rather than a saved wiki version.

Also I was wondering what would happen to the metadata - would the new version (at this point) have the same set of metadata as the saved version. If not this might appear to be an erroneous difference.

All in all, an interesting change but not for me at this time.

Kake, do you still have interest in this one (ie do you think it should be migrated to github)?
