I'm Leaving Github
I Am Using GitHub Under Protest Also posted to dev.to. Github’s decision to sponsor me is so recent that I haven’t been able to cash out the $550 payment yet. In spite of that, I can’t leave the platform fast enough. I certainly do not have the spare-time to move hundreds of projects to a new home… but I’m getting started. GitHub is a proprietary, trade-secret system that is not Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
My Git Commit Hooks
I quite envy a nice commit message. The Rails project has rules about commit messages that are tops. This is a great example from a great developer I know, which got merged into core. So now on my own projects I have cribbed, tweaked, and automated a tiny bit of of that sweet, sweet commit message honey. Naming your branch Step 1 I name my branches with a prefix that is one of: “hotfix”, “bug”, “feature”, or “candy”.
