a post with code diff

You can display diff code by using the regular markdown syntax:

```diff
diff --git a/sample.js b/sample.js
index 0000001..0ddf2ba
--- a/sample.js
+++ b/sample.js
@@ -1 +1 @@
-console.log("Hello World!")
+console.log("Hello from Diff2Html!")
```

Which generates:

diff --git a/sample.js b/sample.js
index 0000001..0ddf2ba
--- a/sample.js
+++ b/sample.js
@@ -1 +1 @@
-console.log("Hello World!")
+console.log("Hello from Diff2Html!")

But this is difficult to read, specially if you have a large diff. You can use diff2html to display a more readable version of the diff. For this, just use diff2html instead of diff for the code block language:

```diff2html
diff --git a/sample.js b/sample.js
index 0000001..0ddf2ba
--- a/sample.js
+++ b/sample.js
@@ -1 +1 @@
-console.log("Hello World!")
+console.log("Hello from Diff2Html!")
```

If we use a longer example, for example this commit from diff2html, it will generate the following output:
