ghooks

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": "gulp lint",
      "commit-msg": "validate-commit-msg",
      "pre-push": "make test",
      "post-merge": "npm install",
      "post-rewrite": "npm install",
      …
    }
  }
  …
}

One of the last things you want is to raise the barrier to contributing to your open source project. So Andreas Windt developed the opt-cli package to allow you to turn your hooks into opt-in/out scripts. See this project's package.json for an example of how to do that.

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

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