IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 Help

Viewing the GitHub Version of a File

You can view the GitHub copy of a file right from the IDE. IntelliJ IDEA detects which branch is currently active and opens the GitHub copy of the file in the corresponding branch.

To view the remote copy of a file

  1. Open the file in the editor or select it in the Project tool window.
  2. On the context menu, choose Open on GitHub. The GitHub copy of the file in the remote version of the current branch opens.
