Compare Binary Data Using Kaleidoscope

Florian Albrecht:

As we have done before on several occasions, we’re going to employ macOS Shortcuts to create a solution for comparing binary data of files in Kaleidoscope, without the need to change Kaleidoscope itself.


Some Kaleidoscope users prefer dealing with the command line. Almost the same functionality that took us several setup steps in Shortcuts can be achieved using an elegant single line command in Terminal:

ksdiff <(xxd A.txt) <(xxd B.txt)
