+1 - I don’t care about whitespaces in 99.9% of cased and I always have to do those few extra clicks to turn it off in each PR.

Please, these are feature will be useful because makes the diff cleaner and help do code reviews focused on main updates of code.

Another vote for this feature!  (I would like to be able to set it as a default on a repo-by-repo basis)

This request is now 8 months old.

@andreagriffiths11 do you have an update?

Where can we track this feature request?

In the meantime, we can use Octo Mate Chrome extension which - among other things - adds a convenient button which saves a few clicks.

I kinda can’t believe this isn’t a feature by now or wasn’t implemented this way in the first place. So simple.

If you have Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey installed, I made a user script that adds the URL parameters to the “Files changed” tab so that Hide whitespace changes  is initially checked when reviewing Pull Requests.

The way Mozilla Phabricator’s diff veiw shows this is my favorite implementation of white space diffing.

It shows a green highlighted ‘>>’ or ‘<<’ at the start of lines where indent chnaged to show which dirrection it moved. But the rest of the line is not highlighted. Please implement something like this and make it the default view for all diffs.

Could you give an update or a way to track this? It’s incredibly tedious to not have this.

Come on GitHub, add this feature.
For those of us who work with terraform, where the linter reformats huge chunks of code, this is a big win.
