Semantic Branch Names

See how a minor change to your branch name style can make you a better programmer.

Format: <type>/#<issueNumber>-<alias>


^------^   ^---^
|          |
|          +---> issue's keyword
+-------> Type: or feat, chore, docs, fix, refactor, style, or test.

More Examples:

  • feat or feature: (new feature for the user, not a new feature for build script)
  • fix: (bug fix for the user, not a fix to a build script)
  • docs: (changes to the documentation)
  • style: (formatting, missing semi colons, etc; no production code change)
  • refactor: (refactoring production code, eg. renaming a variable)
  • test: (adding missing tests, refactoring tests; no production code change)
  • chore: (updating grunt tasks etc; no production code change)

I recommend this prepare-commit-msg


  • repository
cp prepare-commit-msg .git/hooks/prepare-commit-msg
chmod a+x .git/hooks/prepare-commit-msg
  • global
mkdir -p ~/.git-templates/hooks
git config --global init.templatedir '~/.git-templates'
cp prepare-commit-msg ~/.git-templates/hooks/prepare-commit-msg
chmod a+x ~/.git-templates/hooks/prepare-commit-msg

# each repository
git init
