What would you like to do?
git hooks - prevent commit to local master branch and prevent push to remote master branch
#!/bin/sh
# prevent commit to local master branch
branch=`git symbolic-ref HEAD`
if [ "$branch" = "refs/heads/master" ]; then
echo "pre-commit hook: Can not commit to the local master branch."
exit 1
fi
exit 0
#!/bin/sh
# Prevent push to remote master branch
while read local_ref local_sha remote_ref remote_sha
do
if [ "$remote_ref" = "refs/heads/master" ]; then
echo "pre-push hook: Can not push to remote master branch."
exit 1
fi
done
exit 0

@karfau - this is likely an issue with ad blockers and blogspot unfortunately
