GroupDocs.Comparison for Cloud is a REST API that enables your Ruby applications to fetch two documents of supported file format, compare those same format documents and find differences between them. The SDK allows you to make a resultant file and enables you to accept or reject the retrieved changes. Our Document Comparison SDK allows easy integration into your existing Ruby applications, to empower your end-users to compare documents, spreadsheets, presentations, Microsoft Visio diagrams, emails, and files of many other formats.
