See the master branch's source of a file while reviewing a pull request

When i review PR,  I need an option to see the base code by having a hyper link on the "src/features...".

Example file

Of course the "Side-Side by compare helps". But i just want to see the code. Why what is the line count? Read to see what was there before.

The only way i can go check the current code as i want to see is > Source > Navigate to the file.

Hello @Kishorekumar Neelamegam,

Thanks for reaching out.

There's indeed no direct link to a file on the destination branch, however there's a faster way to navigate than switching to Source and searching for that file in the tree.

You can first navigate to that file on source branch by clicking on ··· > Open file. Then simply select the relevant branch in the dropdown just above the file.

Here's a screencast:

Hope this helps.


Cool. Thanks for tip


But wouldn't a direct href help an user ?

Taking directly to the code since the user already is in the master branch of the PR.

No worries :)

But wouldn't a direct href help a user?

Well, it would definitely help in your use case. I guess we tried to balance the design to be functional enough but remain streamlined,  simple and easy to use, as in not overloaded with links and actions. I can't say that looking at the destination branch version of a file in a PR is a common use case, whereas sometimes the source branch version is helpful.

Anyways, please don't hesitate to raise a ticket in our public issue tracker so that we know about your workflow and consider improving it — this way you'll get notified when we do something about that ticket.
