    Default Diff utility for KTR files

    I review changes to KTRs in my team and I wanted an easy way to be able to tell what had changed by a team member. So I wrote difftr which produces a graphical diff given any two KTR files:

    Here's an example of the output (which is an interactive HTML file):

    Name:  screenshot1.png
Views: 364
Size:  6.2 KB

    Clicking on the yellow steps shows the line diff of the simplified XML fragment for that step:

    Name:  screenshot2.jpg

    This tool is really useful, any chance you can share the code in github? On another thread you talked about a command line version as well? I am having some problems merging my changes to Kettle transformations.
