If you need to create a diff patch between two .Net objects of the same type you can check out my object-diff-dotnet repo on github.
Useful for cases such as:
- Retrieving user changes to a settings object and saving them to apply to another settings object.
- Pushing a default product catalog to an application that a user/admin can change details for, saving those changes, and then applying them when a new catalog is pushed from a server.
- Comparing two objects for equality across all properties - e.g. the patch is empty.
- Synchronizing object values across the network by just sending a diff patch rather than entire objects.
