Expanding context in diffs

Whether it’s reviewing community changes to an Open Source project, or using GitHub Flow on a private project, we all spend a lot of time looking at diffs. But to really understand a code change, we sometimes need to see more than just the default three lines of context.

Today we’re excited to announce a new feature that makes this possible. Using the new unfold button in the gutter of a diff, you can reveal additional lines of context with a click.

expand

You can keep clicking unfold until you’ve revealed the whole file, and the feature is available anywhere we render diffs.

Happy code reviewing!
