FileMerge can diff .plist files

  • Open File Merge
  • Go to Preferences -> Filters
  • After the last item in the list of filters double click to enter new values and enter without the quote characters
  • ‘plist’ in the extension column.
  • ‘/usr/bin/plutil -convert xml1 -o – $(FILE)’ in the Filter column.
  • ‘Filtered’ in the Display column.
  • ‘No’ in the Apply* column

or hacker way

defaults write com.apple.FileMerge Filters -array-add '{ Apply = 0; Display = 0; Extension = plist; Filter = "/usr/bin/plutil -convert xml1 -o -  \$(FILE)"; }'
