Wielder of Anor
Offers some protection against human git mistakes. Use Wielder of Anor to run your commits and it'll check your staged files for "forbidden" words (as determined by you) and, if any are found, it will alert you to the locations of said words. It will also block you from committing to branches you don't want to accidentally commit to.
I am absent-minded. Very absent-minded. Absent-minded to the point that I'll throw a "console.log" or "debugger" command into my code only to completely forget about them and then happily push all my code without a care in the world. As you can probably imagine, this gets embarassing quickly. Like, at best.
Yet despite my constant reminders to my brain that we really do need to stop this, it keeps quite happily forgetting everything about everything when it's time to commit my code. And since I (apparently) can't magically fix the way my brain works, I figured I'd make my computer double-check me since, you know, that is the entire reason we invented computers to begin with.
Enter Wielder of Anor.
Wielder of Anor is a quick and easy way to ensure that you aren't committing your code with "forbidden words" you don't want there. You yourself determine which words are forbidden, so this app should be helpful to anyone wanting to prevent certain text from making it past your dev environment. Maybe you're like me and you can never remember to pull your debugging commands out of your code before committing. Maybe you're a code master and commit swaths of code at a time, laughing at the mere mortals around you who commit smaller chunks of work several times a day, and you can't be bothered to check through your tens of thousands of lines of code to ensure you didn't leave some TODO comment in there somewhere. Or maybe your code gets more and more filled with swear words the more frustrating a problem gets and you just can't let one of those slip through again because seriously it'd be like the third or fourth time and you like working here and can't imagine staying here if you slip up another time or two and...
So. If you need to prevent anything in your code from making it past your dev environment and need a reliable way to do this, use Wielder of Anor.
Installation is simple! Just run a
npm install -g wielder-of-anor, then run
wielder-of-anor -h to see the commands available to you. You're now good to go!
Use/What It Does
To use Wielder of Anor, just run it from within the code directory you want to
run the forbidden words checks against (this is important). From your code
directory, just type
wielder-of-anor followed by your arguments. To see valid
Once run, Wielder of Anor will check every file that has been
git added for
forbidden words and print out any files that contain one of them.
If it found none (or if you're forcing a commit), it will run a commit followed by your commit message. Once it prints out "Committed successfuly!", execution will end. Don't forget to run your git push!
Wielder of Anor? Wut.
You know, the thing Gandalf calls himself to the Balrog as he's all "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" over and over? When he's, you know, preventing the Balrog from getting past him? He...he prevents a forbidden thing from...
A gatekeeper. This app is a gatekeeper. Gandalf was a Gatekeeper that one time. It's artistic. Or something.
