Simple git hooks


Simple git hooks

npm install ghooks --save-dev

It is not advised to install ghooks as a production dependency, as it will install git hooks in your production environment as well. Please install it under the devDependencies section of your package.json.

Add a config.ghooks entry in your package.json and simply specify which git hooks you want and their corresponding commands, like the following:

  "config": {
    "ghooks": {
      "pre-commit": "node_modules/.bin/gulp lint",
      "pre-push": "make test",
      "post-merge": "npm install",
      "post-rewrite": "npm install",

All documented hooks are available:

  • applypatch-msg
  • pre-applypatch
  • post-applypatch
  • pre-commit
  • prepare-commit-msg
  • commit-msg
  • post-commit
  • pre-rebase
  • post-checkout
  • post-merge
  • pre-push
  • pre-receive
  • update
  • post-receive
  • post-update
  • pre-auto-gc
  • post-rewrite

CAVEAT: At the moment, parameterized hooks (e.g. prepare-commit-msg) don't receive any parameters, so their usage might be limited.

This module is heavily inspired by __@nlf__'s precommit-hook

Huge thanks to everyone listed here!
