Git hooks made easy

Mac/Linux Build Status Windows Build status

Husky can prevent bad git commit, git push and more 🐢 woof!


If Husky is saving you time, please consider supporting its development on Patreon πŸ™ thank you!


npm install husky --save-dev
// package.json
  "husky": {
    "hooks": {
      "pre-commit": "npm test",
      "pre-push": "npm test",
      "...": "..."
git commit -m 'Keep calm and commit'

To go further, see the docs here.


npm uninstall husky

Upgrading from 0.14

Simply move your existing hooks to husky.hooks field and use raw Git hooks names. Also, if you're using the GIT_PARAMS env variable, rename it to HUSKY_GIT_PARAMS.

  "scripts": {
-   "precommit": "npm test",
-   "commitmsg": "commitlint -E GIT_PARAMS"
+ "husky": {
+   "hooks": {
+     "pre-commit": "npm test",
+     "commit-msg": "commitlint -E HUSKY_GIT_PARAMS"
+   }
+ }

Alternatively, you can run the following command which will do the same automatically for you ;)


Starting with 1.0.0, you can also configure hooks using .huskyrc, .huskyrc.json or .huskyrc.js file.

// .huskyrc
  "hooks": {
    "pre-commit": "npm test"

To view the full list of changes, please see the CHANGELOG.
