Code comparison and review play pivotal roles in ensuring the quality, reliability, and maintainability of software. While Git facilitates these processes through its robust versioning capabilities, LabVIEW's graphical nature poses unique challenges for integration with Git services like GitHub or Azure DevOps etc. LabVIEW developers typically resort to manual code comparisons or rely on the LabVIEW compare utility, often leading to cumbersome workflows and increased review times. To address these challenges, my "LabVIEW Code Comparison Tool for Git" offers a streamlined solution.

This LabVIEW VI empowers users to effortlessly compare code between Git branches or commits directly within the LabVIEW environment, eliminating the need for external tools or complex configurations. With features like current branch status indication, selective comparison controls, and intuitive interface, the tool enhances efficiency and productivity in LabVIEW code review processes. Its versatility caters to various use cases, including general code comparison between revisions and facilitating pull request reviews by identifying changes across branches or commits. By bridging the gaps between LabVIEW development and Git version control, the tool facilitates smoother collaboration and improves the overall software development lifecycle.
