Sometime you will need to have a template for the commit message.
Allways put something (ticket code, bug code, etc…), order of stuff, some command for the CI system, etc…
In Git you can set a a file as the template for the git commit. You can do it for a single project or for your user. In this case I will show the command for all your project.
First you need to write the file. Usualy I make a file in the home ~/.gitmessage where I put the message. For example a file template is:
# Title of the commit, 50 chars # Body. What and Why, with Task Id/Bug Id, 72 chars
Remember, if a row start with # the row is a comment.
After you make your own themplate you must tell git where is it so you need to launch this command:
git config --global commit.template ~/.gitmessage
After this git will use your new template for the commit.
