GitHub and GitLab commit patches

Bet you didn’t know that both GitHub and GitLab can provide you with a patch file by appending “.patch” to the end of the commit URL? I sure didn’t. For example, this commit:

https://gitlab.com/Ambient.Impact/drupal-modules/commit/6b4b2e808cb842de83c97a722b804e1ca88a2e7f

becomes:

https://gitlab.com/Ambient.Impact/drupal-modules/commit/6b4b2e808cb842de83c97a722b804e1ca88a2e7f.patch

This is super useful when you need to use a patch for a Composer package, etc.
