re: Thanks for your tip! Here is the web for other Git emoji ideas: gitmoji.carloscuesta.me/ For me, it looks too much to remember, so I just use so...

It is too much to remember. I use github.com/carloscuesta/gitmoji-cli so that I don't have to remember which emoji is used for which type. It's a git commit hook, so I just do git commit, and it interactively helps me pick the appropriate emoji, write my commit message, and then drops it into my editor to make changes as needed.

If you must use an additional tool to remember your emoji meaning, I bet other too are lost for the interpretation of the emoji, once the wow effect has passed, I think words are much easier and quicker to understand :)

I almost always use both: emoji for recognizing the commit type at first glance and text for a clear and unambiguous description 👍🏻

yes but even for the commit type, I find a word more meaningful than an emoji (and new people on the project / people reading commits without being part of the project) don't need to learn what emoji corresponds to what :).

You make using emojis sound like rocket science 😅 we're talking about little pictures with clear content. A hammer is for fixing something, a scroll is for something documentation related. There really isn't much to learn 🤷‍♂️
