We’ve just released Kaleidoscope 3.4, the latest version of our powerful comparison app. The new version includes a feature requested by many users: printing! Why would you want to print your code comparisons? Here are a few ways that printing can help you in your work and collaborations.
VSCode is a powerful IDE that can be used with all the world’s programming languages through a vast ecosystem of extensions.
And now there is one more. The new Kaleidoscope extension for VSCode allows you to compare entire files, compare a selection of text, show git difftool results and run git mergetool.
The extension provides these functionalities through a comprehensive set of menu choices and toolbar buttons.
The extension allows you to send HTML or CSS to Kaleidoscope, enabling you to compare the changes you are making, while you iterate on your latest web page or web app.

It was October 2018 when Christopher had the idea to integrate Kaleidoscope with lldb, the Xcode Debugger. Back then, he tweeted a gist that showed how to get this to work for his needs.
Many moons later, in February 2021, that feature is finally available to every Kaleidoscope user, configurable with the click of a single button.
