|Re: [babel-dev] php string diffs for saving changes to document translations|

The two solutions Gabe has enumerated look OK to me, but I'd have to try them out to be sure. One thing that concerns me, however, is the need to re-play the entire transaction set if we want to see the latest file. This is perhaps where Antoine's VCS idea comes in to play, since this is what it is designed to do. Denis
To address the problem of needing to re-play the entire transaction set I propose we save the most recent version in the database. The most common use case is someone wanting to update the current translation. The idea of saving the deltas was mostly as a way of tracking who did what when. The delta could also be used in the rare case we need to back out of a translation change.
+1 for looking into how wiki media (of any other wiki) does their magic. If we get lucky there might be some wiki code we can incorporate into Babel.

An other alternative could be to use an editor like the one github uses so that people can make small changes online. I'm afraid otherwise you reinvent quite a few things to approach the same result. Now that's my 0.02 c, feel free to proceed with your plan, Antoine On Tue, Mar 16, 2010 at 16:22, Gabe O'Brien <gabe.obrien@xxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:gabe.obrien@xxxxxxxxxxx>> wrote: Hello Bablers, On our last status call Kit asked me to look into possible solutions to generating diffs for translations of documentation. The idea is we could save the differences between translations as people work on a file and only save one working copy of the most recent translated document. The diffs would serve as an audit trail and allow for recreating the translated document if needed. I found two possible solution for creating diffs in PHP. It would be great to get some feedback from Denis on which one would be better from a server standpoint.
