Awesome Git Hooks Awesome

A curated list of awesome Git hooks

Git Hooks are scripts that run automatically every time a particular event occurs in a Git repository.


Useful Git Hooks scripts

  • pre-commit - This hook is called before obtaining the proposed commit message.
  • prepare-commit-msg - Called after receiving the default commit message, just prior to firing up the commit message editor.
  • pre-receive - This is called on the remote repo just before updating the pushed refs.
  • commit-msg - Can be used to adjust the message after it has been edited in order to ensure conformity to a standard or to reject based on any criteria.
  • pre-push - Called prior to a push to a remote. In addition to the parameters, additional information, separated by a space is passed in through stdin in the form of <local ref> <local sha1> <remote ref> <remote sha1>.
  • pre-auto-gc - Is used to do some checks before automatically cleaning repos.
  • pre-rebase - Called when rebasing a branch. Mainly used to halt the rebase if it is not desirable.
  • applypatch-msg - Can edit the commit message file and is often used to verify or actively format a patch's message to a project's standards.
  • post-receive - This is run on the remote when pushing after the all refs have been updated. It does not take parameters, but receives info through stdin in the form of <old-value> <new-value> <ref-name>.
  • post-rewrite - This is called when git commands are rewriting already committed data.
  • post-rewrite - Called after a successful commit. Useful for triggering notifications, etc.
