🥳️ git(moji)-cz => @owngames/git-cz

🍴️ Why this Fork

npm i -g git-cz
added 1 package in 0.612s

Installs in 0.6s vs 31.1s.

🍽️ But Why this Fork

I needed to customize some things, and seemed like the intent was breaking away from streamich/git-cz.

  • [x] Package Upgrades
  • [x] Node14 Support
  • [x] Subject Customization
  • [x] Theming: Gitmoji ✨️ (new default)
    • Semantic Versioning Requirements for CI/CD
  • [x] Gitflow Brancing
    • CLI Customizations
  • [x] Codestyle Preference
    • Getting there
  • [ ] TypeScript Migration
    • Eventually getting there

📝️ Note: @owngames/git-cz-v7.0.0 is the main breaking off point

🔧️ Custom config

You can provide a custom configuration in a changelog.config.js file in your repo, or in any parent folder.

git-cz will search for the closest config file.

🚧️ Non-interactive mode

Using --non-interactive flag you can run git-cz non-interactive mode.

For example:

git-cz --non-interactive --type=feat --subject="add onClick prop to component"

CLI parameters:

  • --body
  • --breaking
  • --issues
  • --lerna
  • --scope
  • --subject
  • --type

:octocat: Commit

Subject via Format

By default the subject format is: {emoji} {scope} {branchName}{subject}

--format "{emoji} {scope} {branchName}{subject}"
  "commit": {
    "format": "{emoji} {scope} {branchName}{subject}"

You can configure your own using the following fields:

  • {branchName}
  • {emoji}
  • {scope}
  • {subject}
  • {type}

These are the only fields that will be dynamically replaced by @owngames/git-cz.

These are not ${type} so in your configuration if you need to pass dynamically values to format you can while keeping these separate. Helpful for when adding [skip ci] to format conditionally.

📝️ Note: If your configuration file is dynamic and you want to override these change yours at run time to ${type} 😅️. These fields are only replaced if they exist. Heck, you can have a format of: format: "static(hard): code value" if you really want (please do not).


This is really only useful if you are using an issue tracker like Jira.

▲ git-cz [ABC-1234] git-cz

Would pull ABC-1234 in for {branchName}

If you were doing something like:

▲ git-cz [feature/gitflow-branch-names]

You would not want to pass branchPrefix as that would be a long commit message.

Also most likely if you are doing feature branches you are doing ABC-1234's into it.

The subject contains succinct description of the change:

  • Use the imperative, present tense: "change" not "changed" nor "changes"
  • No dot (.) at the end.


Just as in the subject, use the imperative, present tense: "change" not "changed" nor "changes". The body should include the motivation for the change and contrast this with previous behavior.

Breaking Changes

Breaking Changes must start with the words BREAKING CHANGE:.


If you are using husky@5.x on your project that has git-cz as a local dependency please be cognizant of locally installed binaries:

If you were calling directly locally installed binaries, you need to run them via your package manager:

npx --no-install git-cz --hook || true
yarn git-cz --hook || true


Change the mode and create branches via gitflow:

git-cz -m branch


This is not going to be great to type, but may be good to move to:

  • https://github.com/commitizen/cz-cli and create adapter/plugins.
    • ⭐️ 11.k to 500
    • ⬇️ 373k to 23.9k
