vRO-package-diff is a Python package to compare 2 VMware vRealize Orchestrator packages.
It provides a table-formated diff of two packages.
Install and update using pip:
pip install vro_package_diff
|[*]||Please refer to Windows users section as there are some existing limitations.|
vro-diff --help Usage: vro-diff [OPTIONS] REFERENCE_PACKAGE COMPARED_PACKAGE Start a diff operation between two vRO packages. REFERENCE_PACKAGE is the package you want to use as source COMPARED_PACKAGE is the one you want to compare with reference one Options: -l, --legend Display the legend after the diff table -t, --test Exit with `0` if package can be safely imported. Else, returns the number of errors. -h, --help Show this message and exit.
vro-diff tests/data/package_v1.0.package tests/data/package_v1.1.package
Compare, then display legend (–legend):
vro-diff --legend --test tests/data/package_v1.0.package tests/data/package_v1.1.package
Compare, then exit with error if there is any conflict (-–test):
vro-diff --test tests/data/package_v1.0.package tests/data/package_v1.1.package echo $?
The script will exit with the number of items with a conflict situation.
This -–test option can be usefull to implement CI/CD pipelines to compare, then upload(if there is no conflict) vRO packages.
Windows usage is supported with some limitations:
- No colored output.
- Currently I have no idea on how to fix this.
- Some UTF-8 symbols used in output are only with some fonts like DejaVu Sans Mono.
- In future, I will try to implement a version of script that do not request UTF-8 support to return results.
