re: An automatic interactive pre-commit checklist, in the style of infomercials VIEW POST


Well, I'd still go with automated tests, as a colleague suggested. I believe it is very dangerous to prevent commits. As long as it is a personal branch, one should go for it and do whatever they want.
Checklists? I'd surely add them to merge/pull requests.
As a midway point, I would run my checks while detaching from the terminal and returning a 0 exit code. That way, I would still have my checks while creating my commits and keeping changes safe in their place.

Something like:


function main() {
    sleep 10
    echo 'Do my stuff'

main &
exit 0

Maybe some voice messages to give alerts etc, e.g., say when using OS X.

Before I forget and you think I came here to say it is a bad post: I totally loved it! :) It is very important to educate people on hooks
