As a WordPress developer, I deal with lots of code indented with tabs (rather than spaces). By default when viewing these files in GitHub, each tab is rendered as 8 spaces. On my personal machine, I render each tab as 4 spaces. This difference makes it less pleasant to view code in GitHub, however, I just learned I can set my preferred tab rendering in GitHub!
When linking to specific lines in a file to GitHub, it is preferable to link to those lines in the file for a specific commit (rather than for a specific branch). This is because the contents of a branch can change but the contents of a commit remain the same forever.
I want to be able to type “git open-github-pr” and have my browser open to the GitHub URL to create a Pull Request (PR) for my current branch on the current project I’m working on. Here is how I built this.
I spend a lot of time working in issue trackers (e.g. GitHub), which involves writing a lot of markdown. Sometimes, perhaps I write too much information and it would be nice to allow the person reading to optionally skip some details. Traditionally, I accomplish this with a “Summary” section but now with collapsible sections in GitHub Issues, I can write even tidier comments.
