In an effort to improve my Git commit messages I’ve decided to employ a commit message template.
This starts with a file in my Home directory
Three simple lines beginning with # so if I ignore them, so does Git.
# What this commit does # Why this commit is being made # Any other notes, links, thoughts, etc...
Then it gets added to the global Git config.
git config --global commit.template ~/.git-commit-msg-template
As with any resolution, time will tell.
