treecomp.py is located in the Development\Remotion-Contrib\PhoneBook\trunk\tools directory. It accepts two parameters on the command line:

  • the new directory. This will be the path to the PhoneBook template tree
  • the old directory. This will be the path to the re-motion template tree

Thus you invoke treecomp.py like this (in the tools subdirectory):

treecomp.py c:..\Remotion\UIGenTemplates C:\Development\Remotion-Contrib\Web.CodeGenerator\trunk\Templates

The output from treecomp.py will be a batch script for copying the modified (different) files from the PhoneBook template tree to the re-motion template tree. If the two trees are alike, you will see:

After the last template innovation cycle our output looked like this, however:

REM xtra:

In this case, there were only different files (seven of them, to be exact), no extra files. Thus the REM xtra section is empty (maybe next time).

toy use

You can try out treecomp.py on the directory trees established for its unit-tests (see next section: How treecomp.py works).

Don't run the resulting scripts!

You might be tempted to do with the toy batch script output what you are supposed to do with them in real life: run them. However, resist this urge!
This will break the unit-tests!

Identical trees:

C:\Development\Remotion-Contrib\PhoneBook\trunk\tools>treecomp.py trees\equal-trees\new trees\equal-trees\old
*** NOTHING TO DO ***
REM diff:

REM xtra:

This invocation for unequal-trees finds a file named extra.txt in one subdirectory and differences between the two lolz.txt files. These files will be copied when the corresponding sections in the batch file are executed:

C:\Development\Remotion-Contrib\PhoneBook\trunk\tools>treecomp.py trees\unequal-trees\new trees\unequal-trees\old
REM xtra: trees\unequal-trees\new\extra.txt
REM diff: trees\unequal-trees\new\lolek\lolz.txt

REM diff:
copy trees\unequal-trees\new\lolek\lolz.txt trees\unequal-trees\old\lolek\lolz.txt

REM xtra:
copy trees\unequal-trees\new\extra.txt trees\unequal-trees\old\extra.txt

The following invocation throws and exception, because an extra file is found in the old tree. In other words, it is missing from the new tree:

C:\Development\Remotion-Contrib\PhoneBook\trunk\tools>treecomp.py trees\bogus-trees\new trees\bogus-trees\old
