Meld is a graphical diff viewer and merge application for the GNOME desktop. It supports 2 and 3-file diffs, recursive directory diffs, diffing of directories under version control (Bazaar, Codeville, CVS, Darcs, Fossil SCM, Git, Mercurial, Monotone, Subversion), as well as the ability to manually and automatically merge file differences.

I use obsidian and syncthing to synchronise my notes written in markdown across 5 devices. Occasionally, a sync conflic arises and I'm terrified of losing something I've made a note about. Meld works perfectly to resolve any conflicts! The interface is intuitive and so far, I haven't found any bugs! 5 STARS for the absolute gem!

Love it! Don't love the name, which I can never remember. You neither? Then don't forget to also install (and activate) the "Nemo-compare" plugin, so you can launch it from within Nemo, after picking two things to compare!

Been using this for over year now and love it. Allows for 3 way compare of files and folders recursively.

Having text wrapping is very good. I can use this to compare paragraphs.

Meld is bad for complex file comparison as you can't see inside the files. But you can delete or copy any file from any folder as you like. Kdiff3 is great for serious file comparisons as it has built in text viewers, I prefer Kdiff3's layout and method of merging into one folder but it won't let me delete files from one folder and not everything so here I am using Meld again as I want 3 separate folders without the same files, and Meld can do this.

Very nice, but slow and unresponsive on network folders

great, simple to learn, even for people who never used diff. It's the other way around, it teaches to understand diff :-)
