Uh, another leftpad, got it, thanks.

This is an unfair jab and also unnecessarily condescending.

Husky provides many benefits over plain git hooks. One, being able to manage the hooks from your project.json. This makes them visible to anyone viewing the source. They are also source controlled.

Hooks are local to any given Git repository, and they are not copied over to the new repository when you run git clone

This has an important impact when configuring hooks for a team of developers. First, you need to find a way to make sure hooks stay up-to-date amongst your team members
