Diff dirs with PhpStorm everywhere

I was searching for a capable diff tool to compare directories recursively. Like the way I usually do in PhpStorm. But isn’t that possible with it already?

After a quick search I found this in their Help:

You can also open the difference viewer without running PhpStorm. This is done through the following command:

<path to PhpStorm executable file> diff <path_1> <path_2>

where path_1 and path_2 are paths to the folders in question.

Just what the doctor ordered! I immediately set up a button in my file manager and I was happy as I could be.
