    Project mention: How to Git Commit like a professional Developer? | | 2022-05-06

    A lot of firms do something similar to what I list below, except maybe with ticket numbers/ids also included in the branch/commits for tracking purposes. Some firms go a step further and use something like commitizen to further enforce the naming conventions.

    🚫💩 — Run linters on git staged files

    Project mention: How to gradually add an eslint rule | | 2022-05-18

  • ungit

    The easiest way to use git. On any platform. Anywhere.

    Project mention: GitHub Desktop 2.9 includes squashing, reordering, amending, and more | | 2021-06-17

    My favorite Git client by far is Its approach of modeling the entire commit history as a digraph is the way God (or at least Linus) intended Git to be used.

    Visualizing commits like that makes more interesting operations (e.g. cherry-picking, merging, rebasing, squashing) trivial to understand.

  • standard-version

    :trophy: Automate versioning and CHANGELOG generation, with and

    Project mention: Add Commitint, Commitizen, Standard Version, and Husky to SvelteKit Project | | 2022-04-09

    Project mention: Confused about how to get my packages up to `1.0.0` using Lerna / Conventional commits... | | 2022-03-25

    I'm under the understanding from this issue that in semver, a package that is <1.0.0 is considered unstable. This means that a breaking change can occur at any version, usually between minors.

  • Release It! 🚀

    🚀 Automate versioning and package publishing

    Project mention: My ideal Rust workflow | | 2021-10-28

    May be less relevant for your particular workflow (because npm-specific and because everything is internal for you), but I’m a big fan of an alternative in the auto-release-generation space: the combo of release-it and release-it-lerna-changelog, which give you the same kind of automation but don’t require specific git commit messages, because instead the combo uses the GH API and labels to generate the changelog. This is a muuuuuch nicer experience for external contributors, because it puts the responsibility for that back on maintainers instead.

    Project mention: Releases the Easy Way | | 2022-05-02

    Install Commitizen globally by running npm install -g commitizen. Then, you’ll need to initialize your project with a Commitizen adapter.
