    🗜gitz: git utilities for rapid development 🗜

    No, there's no reason to preserve commit messages you used during development.

    When I am developing, I make many tiny commits with an automatically generated title ('Modify util/') each time my tests pass, or really, when I do anything of value. (I use `git-infer`:

    This makes it impossible for me to lose work, and acts like a coarse-grained undo for me, where I can quickly move back and forth between spots that the tests worked if I decide I'm going the wrong way, or create a new branch, move back a bit, and make some changes and compare.

    _Before anyone sees this code_ I rebase it down to a logical sequence extremely-carefully named and organized commits. (The word "manicured" has been used more than once.)

    As I go through code review, I make tiny commits and at the end, rebase them into my carefully-named commits.

    I create at least five commit IDs for each final commit I created. No one wants to see these.

    I spend considerable time organizing everything so just the information you need to see is in the final commits. All the information should be there.

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!
