Task id to commit message

senior frontend developer, love js, little bit more love ts.

I'm sure many of us include task id to branch name, like feature/PROJECT-123. And I'm sure many of us should include task id to commit message, like PROJECT-123 made cool stuff as well. The necessity to add task id to every commit message by hands irritates me, so I decided to write a little git hook intended to do it automatically. I made npm package with this hook and have just published it a couple of days ago.

This hook should be called only at commit-msg git hook because there we have a path to the entered commit message, however, you can find it in readme :)

I hope this hook will help to save a little bit of time!

GitLab is doing this in a pretty good way. When you are merging a merge request, GitLab creates squashed merge commit with message that contains id and merge request and issue name

Sounds good! But I’ve never worked with GitLab. And this package is sooner for trivial commits, not about merge
