Git commit message hook for GitHub issues

A git commit-msg hook that integrates with Github issues.

npm install -g gh-msg

Enter the directory with the git repo you wish to add the hook to, and then run:

gh-msg user/repo

Replacing user/repo with the appropriate user/organization and repo name. From there, make your changes.

When committing, put either GH-1234 or #1234 (replacing the number with the issue's number) on the first line. Make sure that's the only thing on the first line. Then, gh-msg will use the Github API to request the issue's title, and replace your commit message with something like this:

Fixes GH-1234 - "Your issue's title here"

Anything on subsequent lines will be added to the commit as well.
