Module Version: 2.83   Source   Latest Release: SVN-Notify-2.86

Name ^

SVN::Notify::HTML::ColorDiff - Subversion activity HTML notification with colorized diff

Synopsis ^

Use svnnotify in post-commit:

  svnnotify --repos-path "$1" --revision "$2" \
    --to --handler HTML::ColorDiff [options]

Use the class in a custom script:

  use SVN::Notify::HTML::ColorDiff;

  my $notifier = SVN::Notify::HTML::ColorDiff->new(%params);

Description ^

This subclass of SVN::Notify::HTML sends HTML formatted email messages for Subversion activity, and if the with_diff parameter is specified (but not attach_diff), then a pretty colorized version of the diff will be included, rather than the plain text diff output by SVN::Notify::HTML.

Usage ^

To use SVN::Notify::HTML::ColorDiff, simply follow the instructions in SVN::Notify, but when using svnnotify, specify --handler HTML::ColorDiff.

Instance Interface ^

Instance Methods



This method starts outputs the CSS for the HTML message. SVN::Notify::HTML::ColorDiff adds extra CSS to its output so that it can nicely style the diff.


  $notifier->output_diff($out_file_handle, $diff_file_handle);

Reads the diff data from $diff_file_handle and prints it to $out_file_handle for inclusion in the notification message. The diff is output with nice colorized HTML markup. Each line of the diff file is escaped by HTML::Entities::encode_entities().

If there are any diff filters, this method will do no HTML formatting, but redispatch to SVN::Notify::output_diff. See Writing Output Filters for details on filters.
