Commit aliases

Aliases are additionnal commit types that will be formatted to follow AngularJS Commit Message Conventions and automatically set some fields.

For example when choosing initial, cz-conventional-commit will automatically set:

  • the standard type to feat
  • the scope to empty
  • the subject to 'Initial commit πŸŽ‰'
  • the issues to empty
  • the breaking to empty

The commit message will be feat: Initial commit πŸŽ‰.
