JsDiff & Highlighting Differences Between Table Cells


Recommended Posts


I'm using the JsDiff library and trying to compare each cell in a row to it's corresponding cell in the next row; then highlight the differences in the 2nd cell from the first cell. This is how far I've come...


The problem is I need it to highlight where the difference is; not just the entire cells contents. Also, when I set it up in jsFiddle it's not working as it does on my end. I think it's a different version of JsDiff but not sure.

Here is my jsFiddle: https://jsfiddle.net/7fhunqde/6/

if you check your browser's developer console, you will find out why. the diff.js CDN needs to use https

there also may be a version difference. the object is just named Diff, so the JsDiff in the following produces an error, which can be seen in the developer console as well -

var diff = JsDiff.diffChars($(this).text(), cellBelow.text());
