Until today, I imagined that this was a feature of Refined GitHub.
For example, from a post to FreeBSD Forums:
- pre-commit to the left
- committed to the right, in green.
Today I realised, there’s just one column when I view the same GitHub URL in a private window (without signing in):
Is the two column view a feature of GitHub?
Not presented to the public (without signing in)?
nope, I click the link using incognito, not signed in,
you both have the view, just either click,
So I can manually edit the URL, for other readers to get what’s required immediately.
?diff=split in the midst of this edition of the URL:
Without this, if I’m not mistaken:
- visually remember what’s on screen
- key Home, or scroll up until the Split button becomes visible
- click the button
- as a different page loads, lose the anchor
- scroll down to the altered view of what was memorised from the previous page.
I fixed the link in FreeBSD Forums.
