A library for creating precommit hooks against file diffs

Project description


This is a simple library that makes it easier to code hooks for pre-commit that validate commit messages that preserve the commit message on failure. In other words, if the user writes a long commit message and your pre-commit hook tells them the message is bad, they won't have their message entirely thrown away.


You'll want to install the developer dependencies:

pip install -e .[develop]

This will include nose2, which is the test runner of choice. After you make modifications you can run tests with


When you're satisfied you'll want to update the version number and do build-and-upload:

python sdist bdist_wheel
twine upload dist/* --verbose
