Introducing Compared

This is a tool to compare text files in two directories. Similar to Meld but has a simpler UI. Files can be double-clicked to open in Diffuse. Directories can be bookmarked for quicker access. I made this tool a while back to help me compare source code files in multiple projects. I’m sharing it in case someone finds it useful. Source is available on Launchpad.


Ubuntu and derivatives (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc)

Packages are available in the Launchpad PPA for supported Ubuntu releases.
Run the following commands in a terminal window:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install compared

For older Ubuntu releases which have reached end-of-life, you can install from the DEB files linked below.
