The Right way to commit a code - Integrating Git hooks using husky(V7) with (ESLint + commitlint + SonarQube) in Angular(12+)

Here we'll be automating our commit workflow i.e when a developer commits a code it will check for lint errors, do unit testing then inspect the code using SonarQube and check whether the commit message given by developer follows the commit convention or not. Only If all above conditions are satisfied the code will be commited.

In this article we'll cover the basic set-up required to integrate husky into your Angular Application.

Husky improves your commits and more 🐶 woof!
You can use it to lint your commit messages, run tests, lint code, etc... when you commit or push. Husky supports all Git hooks.

Now, Let's get started

  • First install husky

npm install husky --save-dev

This command will add husky to your packahe.json file.

  • enable Git Hook:

npx husky-init

this will add following script to you package.json file
"prepare": "husky install"

and it will also create a .husky folder in your root directory.

  • Next we'll be creating a file in the Husky directory for the purpose of linting commit messages

npx husky add .husky/commit-msg 'npx --no-install commitlint --edit'

this will create a file called commit-msg in .husky directory with the following data:

. "$(dirname "$0")/_/"

npx --no-install commitlint --edit
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now we'll install commit lint
npm install @commitlint/config-conventional @commitlint/cli --dev

now create a file commitlint.config.js in the root directory with the following data

  • Now when you commit you changes using

git commit -m 'new fixes'

it will give the following error, if its not aligned with the git commit conventions (git conventions)
without convention commit

  • again perform the commit with git commit -m 'style(package): package upgrade'

commit following git commit convention

Linting before commit using Husky

Install following package:
npm install lint-staged --save-dev
npm install eslint

ng add @angular-eslint/schematics

ng g @angular-eslint/schematics:convert-tslint-to-eslint --remove-tslint-if-no-more-tslint-targets --ignore-existing-tslint-config

this will migrate the default tslist to esLint

Now add the following content to the pre-commit file .husky/pre-commit

. "$(dirname "$0")/_/"

npx pretty-quick --staged
npx lint-staged
ng test --watch=false --browsers=ChromeHeadless

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Now when you run the following git commit command it will run the pre-commit script which you just defined.

git commit -m 'style(package): package upgrade'

It will run pretty-quick after that it will check lint and after that it will run test case for the project and if successful it will check for the commit message.

Integrating SonarQube

  • Install SonarQube in your system:

For Mac Users:

For Windows Users:

  1. Install SonarQube form
  2. Post download extracts the ZIP file to any folder and then run the StartSonar.bat from sonarqube\bin\windows-x86–64. Now you can access the SonarQube from your browser using the default port http://localhost:9000. You can use the default credentials i.e admin and admin.

SonarQube login window

SonarQube after login

Configure Sonar with Angular

npm install sonar-scanner --save-dev

  • Create a file name in the root directory with the following data:
  • Now, add following script in your package.json file:
"sonar": "sonar-scanner"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Now, run the following script using npm run sonar

If everything goes as planned SonarQube will start inspecting your angular project

  • On Successful completion you can navigate to http://localhost:9000/projects and see the inspection result done on the project.

Final - Integrating Sonarqube with husky

  • Add the following in your pre-commit file lazyloading/.husky/pre-commit
  • Now run git commit -m 'feat(sonar): sonarqube integrated'

That's all, Congratulations🥳🥳 you have successfully integrated Husky with Es-Lint, commitlint and SonarQube with your commit workflow.
