Commit Examples

Why this chapter exists

Please refer to Conventional Commits for more information.

A good commit message enables us:

  1. To understand what the contributor is trying to do
  2. Automatically generates change log

Rule for writing commit message

# (If applied, this commit will...) <subject> (Max 72 characters)

# |<---- Using a Maximum Of 72 Characters ---->|

# Explain why this change is being made

# |<---- Try To Limit Each Line to a Maximum Of 72 Characters ---->|

# Provide links or keys to any relevant tickets, articles or other resources

# Use issues and merge requests' full URLs instead of short references,

# as they are displayed as plain text outside of GitLab

# --- COMMIT END ---

# --------------------

# Remember to

# Capitalize the subject line

# Use the imperative mood in the subject line

# Do not end the subject line with a period

# Subject must contain at least 3 words

# Separate subject from body with a blank line

# Commits that change 30 or more lines across at least 3 files should

# describe these changes in the commit body

# Do not use Emojis

# Use the body to explain what and why vs. how

# Can use multiple lines with "-" for bullet points in body
