Custom GitHub Pull Request Templates
For some time now, GitHub has offered the possibility to create custom pr templates, so that a kind of template is automatically embedded in the editor when creating.
But one variant has always worked so far: a single template in the root directory of the repository: for this purpose the file "PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE.md" must be created and checked in directly in the main directory. As an example you can use the following content.
<!--- Provide a general summary of your changes in the Title above --> ## Description <!--- Describe your changes in detail --> ## Related Issue(s) <!--- Please link to the issue(s) here: --> ## How Has This Been Tested? * [ ] Have you added an explanation of what your changes do and why you'd like us to include them? * [ ] Have you written new tests for your core changes, as applicable? * [ ] Have you successfully ran tests with your changes locally? ## Screenshots (if appropriate):
Afterwards the contents of the file are displayed in the pull reqest creator editor in the description text area - incl. Markdown support.
