  • anki

  • pre-commit

    A framework for managing and maintaining multi-language pre-commit hooks.

    Not exactly as high-stakes as some of the others in here, but Anthony Sottile wrote pre-commit and pre-commit.ci by himself and it’s one of the most useful tools in my arsenal because it triggers any number of code checks and stuff like that every time you do a big commit. I’ve got a number of his hooks installed as well as a linter, formatter, and type checker for my code, and it basically makes sure my code is of much higher quality.
