Ignore whitespace by default?

In the diff views on the Stash web interface, there is an option to ignore whitespace. This is off by default and has to be switched on every time one visits the web interface.(*)

Is it possible to change the global default setting from off to on in the server's config file or somewhere else?

(*) Feature suggestion: store this in a cookie or the user profile so it persists for every user.

This widget could not be displayed.

There's no setting for changing the default or persisting it longer, unfortunately. The setting is persisted, but only for the life of a browser tab (and any tabs opened from it).

This limited persistence is by design, but I suspect we'll eventually end up extending the persistence to the whole browser indefinitely (as you are not the first to want it). You can track a related issue for side-by-side diff preference here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/STASH-4693

UPDATE: If you look at that ticket, we've switch to storing this per-browser. So you won't have to update it when returning to Stash Dev in the same browser, but you will have to update it when switching browser
