I use WIP bot wherever possible, never touched draft PRs. I much prefer the simplicity of having โ€œ๐Ÿšงโ€ at the start of the title and then the pending bot check over the draft PR UI.

But there are benefits that draft PRs have that WIP bot can't provide.

  • There are multiple visible indicators that it is a draft PR, WIP is limited in this.
  • Draft PRs can't be merged, WIP bot can't block merges.
  • If you have a CODEOWNERS file in your repository, a draft pull request will suppress notifications to those reviewers until it is marked as ready for review.

I honestly prefer having the single indicator of the ๐Ÿšง emoji in the title.

It can... have branch protection rules in place that require all checks to pass :)

If you have a CODEOWNERS file in your repository, a draft pull request will suppress notifications to those reviewers until it is marked as ready for review.

Never personally worked on a project with code owners, either manually requested views or had a bot that requests reviews once all checks pass.
