In a Bitbucket pull request file comparison can I specify the number of spaces to use for a tab character?

I would like this ability so that code is better aligned when doing comparisons.

Yes you can, but it's an undocumented feature.

Adding ?ts=4 (where 4 is the desired width) to any URL that has a diff on it, you can change the width of the tabs (note, this only applies to actual tab characters and so for this to have any effect, your code must be formatted using tabs, not spaces).

In addition to that, there is another undocumented feature that lets you ignore all whitespace-only changes in a diff. Use this by adding w=1 to the URL.
