How to quickly find the differences between two Dialogflow agent ZIP files

I have built a tool to help you do this.


Go to the Unpack agent ZIP file tool in BotFlo (you must be logged in to use the tool).

Suppose you want to find the difference between an older version of your Dialogflow agent and the current version.

First browse and load the older Dialogflow agent ZIP file. Let us call this file v1.zip.

Click on the “Copy JSON to Clipboard” button to copy this JSON into your computer’s clipboard.

Go to the ExtendsClass JSON Diff tool.

Paste the JSON for v1 into the left pane.

Now back in the Version Diff tool, upload the second agent ZIP file. Let us call it v2.zip.

Once again, copy the JSON into your clipboard and paste it into the right pane of the JSON Diff tool.

As soon as you paste your JSON into the second textbox, you will see the output below (which shows the difference).

Here is an example with the JSON above.

If you only have a few changes, you should be able to use this tool and quickly spot what’s changed.

About this website

BotFlo1 was created by Aravind Mohanoor as a website which provided training and tools for non-programmers who were2 building Dialogflow chatbots.

This website has now expanded into other topics in Natural Language Processing, including the recent Large Language Models (GPT etc.) with a special focus on helping non-programmers identify and use the right tool for their specific NLP task.

1 BotFlo was previously called MiningBusinessData. That is why you see that name in many videos

2 And still are building Dialogflow chatbots. Dialogflow ES first evolved into Dialogflow CX, and Dialogflow CX itself evolved to add Generative AI features in mid-2023
