Please feel free to use prettydiff.com.xhtml file to supplement dom.js. Otherwise, dom.js requires supplemental assistance to map DOM nodes from an HTML source to the properties of the pd.o object found in dom.js. dom.js is fault tolerant so most of the nodes mapped by pd.o need not be supported from custom HTML.
To run Pretty Diff using dom.js include the following two script tags and bind the pd.recycle() function to the executing event. Please refer to prettydiff.com.xhtml for an HTML example and documentation.xhtml for option and execution information.
Node.js / CommonJS / RequireJS
Node.js support is provided by api/node-local.js. This file can execute in the following modes:
- screen - code input is on the command line and output is to the command line
- filescreen - code input is in a file and the output is to the command line
- file - the input and the output reside in files
- directory - everything in a directory is processed into a specified output directory except ".", "..", and subdirectories
In your Node.js script include Pretty Diff with this code:
var prettydiff = require("prettydiff");
From the command line execute api/node-local.js similar to these examples:
>node c:\\prettydiff\\api\\node-local.js source:"c:\mydirectory\myfile.js" readmethod:"file" diff:"c:\myotherfile.js" >node c:\\prettydiff\\api\\node-local.js source:"c:\mydirectory\myfile.js" mode:"beautify" readmethod:"file" output:"c:\output\otherfile.js"
Create a WSH script file using XML syntax and with a file extension of "WSF". This file must have a tag for each supported argument, must be capable of reading from a file, and retrieving dependencies.
Pretty Diff would be executed using the following on CLI:
cscript prettydiff.wsf cscript prettydiff.wsf /source:"myFile.xml" /mode:"beautify"
The component files are provided for access to individual functions independent of the Pretty Diff application. The component code is already included in prettydiff.js, so it is not needed in addition to prettydiff.js. The only files not included with prettydiff.js are the APIs and the stylesheet - diffview.css.

pd.o object literal is in the api/dom.js file and exists to provide a one time and external means of access to the DOM.
The code mentioned above has significantly expanded documentation in each of the respective function's external JS file as linked from the documentation page: http://prettydiff.com/documentation.php
The compilation of cssClean, csvbeauty, csvmin, jsmin, jsdifflib, markup_beauty, markupmin, and js-beautify in this manner is a result of the prettydiff() function contained in prettydiff.js. The per character highlighting is the result of the charcomp() function also contained in prettydiff.js. Any use or redistribution of these functions must mention the following: Prettydiff created by Austin Cheney originally on 3 Mar 2009. http://prettydiff.com/

In addition to the previously stated requirements any use of any component, aside from directly using the full files in their entirety, must restate the license mentioned at the top of each concerned file.
If each and all these conditions are met use and redistribution of prettydiff and its required assets is unlimited without author permission.
