Automatically enables the ignore whitespace option on Bitbucket PRs and commits

Bitbucket does not current offer a way to set the "Ignore Whitespace" setting as your default option when reviewing pull requests and commits. It's an incredibly useful option to have on when viewing side-by-side diffs but neither your Bitbucket account, nor browser local storage, will save you preference to enable it.

That's what this extension does - while enabled, any pull request or commit will have the "Ignore Whitespace" option enabled by default. This also applies to the "new PR experience" that Atlassian are rolling out via Bitbucket Labs.

Bitbucket Whitespace Ignorer is risky to use as it requires a number of sensitive permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.
