I use Visual Studio Code on my Mac as my text editor and have it set up to open a new window to type my commit message, however when I type 'git commit' in the terminal, it instantaneously displays 'Aborting commit due to empty commit message.'
I have my git config set up as 'git config --global core.editor "code --wait"' and when I type 'git config --global -e' it shows '[core] editor = code --wait'. I've uninstalled and reinstalled git, I've went through the VS Code as Git Editor setup guide, and have searched online for a solution for at least ten hours. My git and VS Code versions are up to date and my commits work when I type 'git commit -m "message here"' in the command line, but I still don't know why my VS Code editor option isn't working.
Any ideas here? Thank you!
