Code review entire repo on GitHub without new commits


How can I conduct a code review for an interview candidate on GitHub using a PR/code review in the absence of new commits? Can I use a hack like making a fork, or do I need to clone the repo locally and read through line-by-line? I'm particularly interested in the per-line comments.

Do you want to checkout his existing work or did you give him a problem to solve? If it's an existing repo, I would suggest that you clone the repo locally and check it out on an IDE.

You might even use a Linting to make the job quicker!
