Advent of Pull Requests Best Practice - Day 9

Remember how I mentioned we should add Screenshots or Videos to your PR template? I can't stress enough how crucial this is, especially for web projects.

Let's talk visuals! When it comes to UI changes, screenshots and videos aren't just nice to have - they're pretty much essential. They make it way easier for reviewers to see exactly what's changed and how it links up with the code tweaks you've made. Showing off the 'before' and 'after' with screenshots? That's gold for helping everyone get what your PR is all about. And if we're talking about more complex stuff, like user interactions or flows, a short video can be a total game-changer, making the review process quicker and more on point.

Here's an extra cool thing you might not have thought about: adding these visuals actually acts as a sneaky quality check. We've all been there, making small changes and thinking, "Ah, it's just a tiny tweak, no need to test it exhaustively." But let's be real - even a single line of code can stir up bugs. If you have to include a screenshot or video in your PR, you'll have to double-check your work, no matter how small the change seems. It's an awesome way to keep our standards high and our app running smoothly.

So, let's make this a habit, shall we? Trust me, it'll make our lives a lot easier and our work a lot better!
