JSHint Convention

Overview

Commit messages are written in a simple format which clearly describes the purpose of a change.

The format in general should look like this:

[[TYPE]] <Short description>
<Blank line>

<Body / Detailed description>

<Footer>

Line lengths in commit messages are not strict, but good commit messages should have headers of no more than 60 characters, and bodies/footers wrapped at 100 columns. This renders nicely on Github's UI.

Header

The first line is the commit message header, which will indicate the type of change, and a general description of the change. This should fit within 60 characters, ideally. For instance:

[[FIX]] Ignore "nocomma" when parsing object literals

The title [[FIX]] indicates that the change is a bugfix, while the remainder clarifies what the change actually contains.

Several commit types are used by jshint:

  1. [[FIX]] --- Commit fixes a bug or regression
  2. [[FEAT]] --- Commit introduces new functionality
  3. [[DOCS]] --- Commit modifies documentation. Docs commits should only touch comments in source code, or scripts and assets which are used to generate the documentation.
  4. [[TEST]] --- Commit modifies tests or test infrastructure only
  5. [[CHORE]] --- Commit affects dev-ops, CI, or package dependencies

Body

<Body> is a detailed commit message explaining exactly what has changed, and a summary of the reason why. Lines in the body should be wrapped to 100 characters for best rendering.

For a historical example, see this example

Footer

<Footer> contains a description of any breaking changes, no matter how subtle, as well as a list of issues affected or fixed by this commit. Lines in the footer should be wrapped to 100 characters for best rendering.

For instance:

[[FEAT]] Enable `norecurs` option by default

Commit 124124a7f introduced an option which forbids recursion. We liked it so much, we've enabled
it by default.

BREAKING CHANGE:

This change will break the CI builds of many applications and frameworks.

In order to work around this issue, you will need to re-engineer your applications and frameworks
to avoid making recursive calls. Use Arrays as stacks rather than relying on the VM call stack.

Fixes #1000009
Closes #888888
Closes #77777
