View Difference between Files and Folders Graphically in Linux With Meld

There are terminal utilities like ‘diff’ and ‘vimdiff’ in Linux to visualise the differences in two files. But sometimes this visual presentation can be difficult to be viewed and understanding it might take some time as it can be confusing to analyse.

Using meld we can visually the differences in a less confusing way and understand it more easily. Here is a screenshot of the same.

Bonus advantage is that we can view the graphical difference of two folders also.

To install Meld you can install from command line using the following command

sudo apt install meld
