🚀 gitg0


NodeJS CI Tests Synk Prettier Linter

gitg0 is a command line tool which makes lives of both project maintainers and contributors easy 😌. How does gitg0 do that❓

For contributors and developers 👨‍💻

  • Ever spent 2-3 minutes before working on thinking what to name your branch? ⸙
  • After making the changes, spent time on wondering about an appropriate commit message? 🖋️
  • After a long hectic day of working, skipped over the commit guidelines followed by your project? 😴
  • Felt like your commit message could be a bit better if it had an emoji? ✨

Well, gitg0 takes care of all this and much more! You just need to enter the number of the issue you're working on, and select what kind of issue it is, whether a new feature, ui refactors, documentation, security fixes, etc. gitg0 will do the rest for you. The tool will automatically suggest a branch name, and a commit message as well along with an appropriate emoji if you want one!

For maintainers 👩‍🔧

Tired of telling contributors to follow proper commit guidelines? 😫

Fear no more, gitg0 is here! With gitg0, you can setup a .gitgo file and choose exactly what commit guidelines your project follows. You want an emoji? We got you covered. You want to enter a custom set of guidelines? We provide an option for that as well. Just eenter the format in which you want your commits to be, and that is the format in which the commit message that will be shown to contributors when they want to make a commit.

👨‍🏭 Who are we?

This project was built by Preet Shah, Shambhavi Aggarwal, Rachit Gupta and Yash Khare.

What did we learn?

This was our first time working on building a CLI Application. Besides this, it was the first time Yash and Rachit worked with JavaScript to this extent. Shambhavi and Preet learned a lot about testing CLI Apps.

💻 What did we use?

gitg0 has been developed completely in javascript.

🔨 Installation

The tool is available as an npm package over here.

Before installing the package, download and install Node.js. Then you can install it by simple running the following command:

npm i gitg0

🎮 Usage

Currently, we have the following 6 commands which will make you Good To Go, gtg:

gtg whoami

As the name suggests this command will help you know what the tool does and how to use the commands right from your terminal.

gtg config

This commands should be used on for the first time, while setting up the gitgo configuration. You will be asked a small set of questions regarding your commit and emoji preferences. If you would like to change these preferences sometime in future, you can run this command again to make the changes.

gtg start

Everytime you start working on a new issue, just run this command in order for the tool to know which issue you're working on. After this, the tool will suggest the branch names and commit messages automatically.

gtg display

This command can be used to display the branch name and commit that the tool will be suggesting for a particular issue once gtg start has been run.

gtg checkout

This is a replacement for git checkout and will simply checkout with the suggested branch name.

gtg commit

This is a replacement for git commit and will commit your files once added with the suggested commit message.
