Ranger has no "other side" so it's not clear what should be the
equivalent of the "other side" in ranger.  It could be the backtick
bookmark, the tab right of the current one, etc.

Of course it may save some typing if you can refer to the directory
where you yanked something with a macro, but I wouldn't call it %D.
Maybe %C or something.

Your mc-command in ranger:
1. Navigate to %D
2. Type hyy
3. Navigate to %d
4. Type !p!diff -ur %d %c
(the p! pipes the output into a pager, "less" by default)

Not as straight-forward as in MC, but well, as I already mentioned,
ranger works differently than the 2-pane-fms and I hesitate to add
2-pane-logic to it.
