Commit Guidelines (Git Commit Convention)

A strict commit guidelines are followed so that its easy to do release with semantic versioning. Semantic Release package is used to do this. Commitizen is used with Commitizen Conventional Changelog to add proper commit messages. Git hooks created using ghooks are inplace to enforce the commit format used in the project. Each commit message consists of a header, a body and a footer. The header has a special format that includes a type, a scope and a subject. The commit message format is bellow.

<type>(<scope>): <subject>

Header is mandatory and the scope is optional, But its encouraged to add a scope. Footer is also optional. To perform a commit follow these steps

# Add the files you want to commit
$ git add <FILES_TO_COMMIT>

# Use the configured ghook
$ npm run commit
