Unfriendly UI for reviews in PR

When there are numerous comments in a single review, GitHub hides some of them. While this makes sense, what doesn’t make sense is that the resolved conversations are not prioritized for hiding.

As a result, sometimes, I need 2-3 clicks and wait for subsequent loads in order to check if there are unresolved comments hiding. Based on this I have 2 questions:

  • Is there any hope for a UI update to address this?
  • Is there any extension supporting this? “Refined GitHub (free)” doesn’t do this
  • Failing previous 2, how do I go about modify the UI using a custom javascript? I use ViolentMonkey for this purpose on other websites. Sadly, I’m not a JS developer and haven’t found any snippet providing this feature (but seeing as JS is a popular language, might get enough help to cobble such a feature together)

Hi there! :wave: Welcome to the Community!

We’re always working to improve GitHub, and we consider every suggestion we receive, so perhaps you’d like to submit your feedback through our official product feedback form so that our product team can see exactly how you’d like the UI for PR reviews to work?

I don’t have any recommendations for browser extensions that would do this, unfortunately, but perhaps some of our other Community members might have?

If you’re interested in making your own browser extension, the Chrome docs aren’t a bad place to start:

Making an extension for Firefox or another browser follows a similar process…

Thanks. I’m also filling the form :slight_smile:
