Event Timeline

Some examples on a demo system (all kudos going to @jkroll):

  • Adding text in a moved paragraph

https://mwdiffstuff.wmflabs.org/core/index.php?title=Difftest1&diff=10&oldid=9

  • Removing text in a moved paragraph

https://mwdiffstuff.wmflabs.org/core/index.php?title=Difftest1&diff=11&oldid=10

  • Moving a paragraph with changes and adding another in the same edit detects correctly which paragraph was moved

https://mwdiffstuff.wmflabs.org/core/index.php?title=Difftest1&diff=12&oldid=11

  • Moving / copying a paragraph to several places detects the move and shows the changes correctly

https://mwdiffstuff.wmflabs.org/core/index.php?title=Difftest1&diff=13&oldid=12

There are cases where the current code cannot display the changes
correctly. For instance, moving/copying a paragraph to several different
places and *removing* different text from the pasted paragraphs:

For the record, the test system mentioned above is using https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/319866/
