diff

rbt diff is similar to rbt post, but will only print the diff to standard out instead of creating a review request for it.

Usage:

$ rbt diff [options] [changenum | [<file> ...]]

Default Options

A number of options to rbt diff can be set by default in .reviewboardrc. These can go either in the repository’s or the user’s .reviewboardrc.

The options include:

Options

-d, –debug

Display debug output.

The default can be set in DEBUG in .reviewboardrc.

–server

Specify a different Review Board server to use.

The default can be set in REVIEWBOARD_URL in .reviewboardrc.

–revision-range

Generate the diff for review based on given revision range.

–parent

The parent branch this diff should be against (only available if your repository supports parent diffs).

–tracking-branch

Tracking branch from which your branch is derived (Git only, defaults to origin/master)

–svn-changelist

Generate the diff for review based on a local SVN changelist.

–repository-url

The url for a repository for creating a diff outside of a working copy (currently only supported by Subversion with --revision-range or --diff-filename and ClearCase with relative paths outside the view). For Git, this specifies the origin url of the current repository, overriding the origin url supplied by the Git client.

–username

Username to be supplied to the Review Board server.

The default can be set in USERNAME in .reviewboardrc.

–password

Password to be supplied to the Review Board server.

The default can be set in PASSWORD in .reviewboardrc.

–repository-type

Specifies the type of repository in the current directory. In most cases this should be detected automatically, but some directory structures containing multiple repositories require this option to select the proper type. The rbt list-repo-types command can be used to list the supported values.

The default can be set in REPOSITORY_TYPE in .reviewboardrc.

–p4-client

The Perforce client name that the review is in.

The default can be set in P4_CLIENT in .reviewboardrc.

–p4-port

The Perforce servers IP address that the review is on.

The default can be set in P4_PORT in .reviewboardrc.

–p4-passwd

The Perforce password or ticket of the user in the P4USER environment variable.

The default can be set in P4_PASSWD in .reviewboardrc.
