GitHub implements much sought +1 button




GitHub has made a first significant change with respect to one of the most desirable features: adding a +1 button. In addition to the possibility to give a +1 a reaction with a “thumbs up”, other reaction possibilities, there are also added.

The other reactions icons turned his thumb down or -1, a ‘smile’, ‘thinking face’, ‘heart’ and ‘tada’. The functionality works for pull requests, issues and comments. Therefore GitHub is a little response to the complaints that hundreds of developers expressed in an open letter to GitHub in January. They were of the opinion that it GitHub ignored them and did not respond to suggestions for improvements from the community.

GitHub has not yet commented on his blog on the problem that created issues missing crucial information, because there is no way to add it afterwards. New Reactions that can be used according to the GitHub developers relevant conversations that carry people through the platform. The use of emoji that all was possible, would only add noise to discussions.
