Comparing

Orion includes a rich browser-based compare infrastructure for analyzing the differences between files and directories. This comparison can be used in conjunction with team support such as Git, or standalone between files and folders in your Orion workspace.

Comparing files

You can compare two text files in Orion by doing the following:

  • In the Navigator page, select two files to be compared. From the Actions menu, select Compare with each other.

  2. Select one folder. From the Actions menu, select Compare with.... Select the folder to compare with in the dialog that opens.
