Mapki's Deep Diff/Bookmarklet

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An unofficial bookmarklet (see this page's history for authors) tested only with Chrome, Firefox, and Pale Moon (edit this if you tested in another browser).

Run this on a page (/history page works too) of a node, way or relation (elements) – example. The bookmarklet opens the deep diff page (example) in a new tab.

For Chrome:

  1. Create a new bookmark.
  2. Name the bookmark.
  3. Paste the javascript code into the URL box.
  4. Click the save button.
javascript:var urlParts = document.location.href.split('/');
if (urlParts[2] === '') {
    switch (urlParts[3]) {
    case "node":
    case "way":
    case "relation":
        var idMatch = urlParts[4].match(/\d+/);
        var objId = idMatch[0];
        (function () {
  '' + encodeURIComponent(urlParts[3]) + '.php?id=' + encodeURIComponent(objId));
        alert('Only nodes, ways and relation histories can be inspected.');
else {
    alert('This is not a supported page.');
