Readme

detect-conflict Build Status
Small utility library that check if a new file content can be merged safely in the on-disk existing file.

Usage

Example

var conflict = require('detect-conflict');

var isConflicting = conflict('some-file-name.js', 'var newContent;');

It'll return true if a conflict is found, false otherwise.

API

conflict(filepath : string, contents : Buffer | String)

If the contents is passed as a string, we assume it is utf8 encoded. Pass a Buffer if you want to compare special encoding.
If filepath points to a directory, we'll always return true.
