Creating Pre-Commit-Hooks in Git and Mercurial: Prefix Commit Messages for Feature/Story Branches

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

Managing my projects’ source code I am using Git also as Mercurial. Therefore I often encounter the situation where I am creating a special branch to implement a specific user story or feature request.

Now when working on such a story branch I often enter the issue-key or a short title as a prefix for each commit message. Doing this by manually is a waste of time and error-prone and luckily for us, each of both DVCS offers us an easy API to add custom hooks to the different life-cycle events.
