Git Diff Viewer

Describe your Extension idea
A rich diff viewer (like the one on Github and this one) for .diff and .patch files generated by git diff. It would be even better if the extension could include an interface for generating these files in the first place, but that’s not too hard with git

What problem(s) would this Extension solve?
This would make it easier to view the changes between two refs. (This is very similar to JSON viewer in that it has a set list of file extensions that it interprets and builds a UI based on the file contents)

Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this Extensions request
I wanted to see the changes between two refs

EDIT: I went ahead and made this for fun! Look for Git Diff Viewer in the extensions store


Agreed, this is much needed!

We’re working on adding native support for git diffs soon!
