the idea of a plugin to integrate an external diff merge tool to Eclipse is great, why limit to Beyond Compare?
it would be really nice to be able to choose the command path and have a few place holder parameters such as $TITLELEFT $TITLERIGHT $TITLEANCESTOR, $PATHLEFT..., best of all with a simple text file storing entries such as:
[Beyond Compare]
PATH=....
DIFF_ARGUMENTS=
MERGE_ARGUMENTS=

[Other tool]

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for the idea. Sadly there is not much active development going on for this project. And the tiny amount of time that we have to work on this project will be spent on fixing bugs related to the current Beyond Compare integration.

    The source is freely available though, so you are welcome to try and integrate other compare tools!
