About navigating code on GitHub
Navigating code functions use the open source library
semantic. The following languages are supported:
- PHP (beta)
- TypeScript (beta)
Tip: Code navigation works for active branches. If the feature is enabled for you but you don't see links to the definitions of functions and methods, push to the branch and try again.
Jumping to the definition of a function or method
You can jump to a function or method's definition within the same repository by clicking the function or method call in a file.
Finding all references of a function or method
You can find all references for a function or method within the same repository by clicking the function or method call in a file, then clicking the References tab.
