I'm using git alias for writing beautiful commit messages. Below, I pasted a few lines from the .gitconfig file.

# Git Commit, Add all and Push — in one step.
cap = "!f() { git commit -m \"$@\"; }; f"
# NEW.
new = "!f() { git cap \"📦 NEW($1): $2\"; }; f"
# IMPROVE.
imp = "!f() { git cap \"👌 IMPROVE($1): $2\"; }; f"
# UPDATE.
up = "!f() { git cap \"✍🏻 UPDATE($1): $2\"; }; f"
# FIX.
fix = "!f() { git cap \"🐞 FIX($1): $2\"; }; f"
# RELEASE.
rlz = "!f() { git cap \"🚀 RELEASE($1): $2\"; }; f"
# DOC.
doc = "!f() { git cap \"📖 DOC($1): $2\"; }; f"
# TEST.
tst = "!f() { git cap \"🤖 TEST($1): $2\"; }; f"
# BREAKING CHANGE.
brk = "!f() { git cap \"‼️ BREAKING CHANGES($1): $2\"; }; f"
# REMOVE
remove = "!f() { git cap \"🗑 REMOVE($1): $2\"; }; f"
# REFACTOR
ref = "!f() { git cap \"♻️ REFACTOR($1): $2\"; }; f"
# INITIAL COMMIT
int = "!f() { git cap \"🎉 INITIAL COMMIT($1): $2\"; }; f"
