Graphtage Documentation

Graphtage is both a commandline utility and a general purpose library for semantically comparing and merging tree-like structures, such as JSON, XML, HTML, YAML, and CSV files. Its name is a portmanteau of “graph” and “graftage”—the latter being the practice of joining two trees together such that they grow as one.
