Rendered Prose Diffs

Today we are making it easier to review and collaborate on prose documents. Commits and pull requests including prose files now feature source and rendered views.

Click!

Click the “rendered” button to see the changes as they’ll appear in the rendered document. Rendered prose view is handy when you’re adding, removing, and editing text:

Editing text

Or working with more complex structures like tables:

Non-text changes appear with a low-key dotted underline. Hover over the text to see what has changed:

Building great software is about more than code. Whether you’re writing docs, planning development, or blogging what you’ve learned, better prose makes for better products. Go forth and write together!
