By default, jack diff cleans up after itself and removes the originally downloaded .elasticbeanstalk/saved_configs. If you would like to keep that file around for further inspection, use the --dirty flag.

jack diff hi-web-stag --dirty

The diffs are formatted so that their keys are sorted. This has been done so the diffs are actually useful. It is also recommended you install colordiff so you can see the diff output colorized. You can also specify your own diff viewer via the JACK_DIFF environment variable. To use a your own diff viewer, add this to your ~/.profile:

$ export JACK_DIFF=colordiff

Pro tip: Use the <- and -> arrow keys to move back and forward.
