W3Diff

This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
W3Diff is a tool that allows for a plaintext view of Warcraft III maps' and campaigns' binary files.

One of the possible uses is allowing git diff to compare these files, configuration for which can be found here. This, in turn, enables map makers to have text diffs while keeping the map openable by editor. Diff for every extension can be separately disabled by commenting out the extension's entry in .gitattrbutes, so only some files get diffed when that is preferable.
