Have you ever edited any of the plugins you have installed? If so, then rvm_plugin_diff is meant for you.
This plugin helps you do the following:
The goal of this plugin is to make it easier to feed back bugfixes to the original authors of plugins. It’s often easy to fix a bug, but I found it hard to find what exactly I had changed afterwards (having edited around half the plugins in use at textpattern.org), so I had some fun writing this plugin and learned a lot about how (unified) diff and patch works.
Note: the patches this plugin creates, use UNIX-style line endings. If the original code was developed on a different platform, you may have to convert the line endings before applying the patch.

textpattern shows me wich plugins were changed in the pluginlist – would it be possible to use this info in your plugin as well, e.g. by displaying the plugins that got changed in bold? Agreed, it’s only a minor visual change and maybe not worth the hassle, but still I would it consider a nice touch…
apart from that: nifty and very helpful plugin
Thank you for writing it.
aba, instead of making the modified plugins bold, I’ve separated modified and original plugins in the select list. Is that clear enough, you think?
Note that simply saving a plugin without changing it is often enough to make it show up as modified (due to invisible changes in whitespace and line endings).
great and very helpful. Thank you very very much.
Thanks for this plug-in
I have installed it. I don’t know if I will really use it but it makes me feel like a kid enjoying a magic trick!

Is the rvm_plugin_diff (v0.2) compatible with TXP 4.0.6?
I’ve installed it but it seems isn’t working.
EDIT: it works, it was my fault.
