Commitiquette

Here is a simple tip on committing work while working on a team. When committing any sort of update to a project you should always use the proper prefix for each message. A prefix helps the rest of the team identify what features or components to a project you have updated or changed. Proper prefixes can be in brackets [] or parenthesis (). For example:

  • (feat) Added a new feature
  • (fix) Fixed inconsistent tests
  • (refactor) …
  • (cleanup) …
  • [test] …
  • [doc] …
  • [update] merging changes

Another tip when committing changes to a project is to do the following steps: commit changes, pull from project master (to merge any changes that may have been made before you), resolve any conflicts, push to your branch, and then create pull request for the project master. Doing commits this way will show your teammates you are a professional and can save you from a whole mess of trouble.
