At GitHub, we love finding new ways to help people get in the zone.
Today we’re excited to announce a feature that we hope will do just that.
You’ll now find a Zen Mode button on every new comment, issue, and pull
request form across the site.

go-fullscreen

This will immediately launch you into Zen Writing Mode, removing all
distractions so you can focus completely on writing.

chrome-fullscreen-light

You can choose between two themes—light (above), or dark (below).

chrome-fullscreen-dark

To change your theme, use the switcher at the top right of your window:

switch-themes

Zen Mode file editing

Zen Writing Mode is designed to work best when composing regular content
rather than code, so it’s also a perfect solution for writing documentation
within your projects. For this reason, we’ve made it available when
creating and editing
files. Simply use the Zen Mode button above the file box:

fullscreen-files

Autocomplete

We all love emoji,
@mentions, and issue
autocompletion
, so you’ll be
glad to know that they’ve all been invited to the party.

Happy focusing!
