App for more details on file versions and changes of text files

Hi Everyone,

i am considering making a project for my studies to develop an app that adds a more detailed view and additional information about changes and versions of text-files. I think this could be helpul on working on small code projects for example.

My ideas so far are:

  • make it possible to see old versions in the file editor and open them next to other versions
  • possibiliy to write a comment for every filechange
  • maybe create a changelog document
  • overview an statists over changes

I dont knew if my ideas are realizable because I am not yet familiar enough with the code of Nextcloud.

It would be great if anyone of you could give me a feedback on my idea and tell me what your thoughts are about it. Maybe there are others who had a similar idea or there have been similar projects yet.

Thanke in adance
