About

ramsey/conventional-commits is a PHP library for creating and validating commit messages according to the Conventional Commits specification. It also includes a CaptainHook plugin!

This project adheres to a code of conduct. By participating in this project and its community, you are expected to uphold this code.

Installation

Install this package as a development dependency using Composer.

composer require --dev ramsey/conventional-commits

Usage

To use the conventional-commits console command to help you prepare commit messages according to Conventional Commits, enter the following in your console:

./vendor/bin/conventional-commits prepare

To see all the features of the console command, enter:

./vendor/bin/conventional-commits

Validating Commit Messages

To use the CaptainHook plugin to validate commit messages according to the Conventional Commits specification, add the following to the commit-msg property in your captainhook.json file:

{
    "commit-msg": {
        "enabled": true,
        "actions": [
            {
                "action": "\\Ramsey\\CaptainHook\\ValidateConventionalCommit"
            }
        ]
    }
}

Preparing Commit Messages

You can set up this library to prompt you to prepare commit messages when you use git commit!

To use the CaptainHook plugin to prepare commit messages according to the Conventional Commits specification, add the following to the prepare-commit-msg property in your captainhook.json file:

{
    "prepare-commit-msg": {
        "enabled": true,
        "actions": [
            {
                "action": "\\Ramsey\\CaptainHook\\PrepareConventionalCommit"
            }
        ]
    }
}

Configuration

Configuring ramsey/conventional-commits offers control over a few more aspects of commit messages, such as letter case (i.e. lower, upper), allowed types and scopes, required footers, and more.

We look for configuration in one of two places:

  • composer.json
  • captainhook.json

⚠️ Please note: if your composer.json file is not in the same location as the vendor/ directory, we might have trouble locating it. Feel free to open an issue, and we'll work with you to see if we can find a solution.

Configuration Properties

Configuration for ramsey/conventional-commits consists of the following properties:

Property Description
typeCase The letter case to require for the type. By default, any letter case is acceptable.
types An array of accepted types (in addition to "feat" and "fix"). By default, any type is acceptable.
scopeCase The letter case to require for the scope. By default, any letter case is acceptable.
scopeRequired Whether a scope is required. By default, scope is not required.
scopes An array of accepted scopes. By default, any scope is acceptable.
descriptionCase The letter case to require for the description. By default, any letter case is acceptable.
descriptionEndMark A character to require at the end of the description. By default, any character is allowed. Use an empty string to indicate a punctuation character is not allowed at the end of the description.
bodyRequired Whether a body is required. By default, a body is not required.
bodyWrapWidth An integer indicating the character width to auto-wrap the body of the commit message. By default, the commit body does not auto-wrap.
requiredFooters An array of footers that must be provided. By default, footers are not required.

When specifying configuration, if you wish to use the default behavior for a property, it is not necessary to list the property in your configuration.

Recognized letter cases are:

Identifier Name Example
ada Ada case The_Quick_Brown_Fox
camel Camel case theQuickBrownFox
cobol COBOL case THE-QUICK-BROWN-FOX
dot Dot notation the.quick.brown.fox
kebab Kebab case the-quick-brown-fox
lower Lower case the quick brown fox
macro Macro case THE_QUICK_BROWN_FOX
pascal Pascal case TheQuickBrownFox
sentence Sentence case The quick brown fox
snake Snake case the_quick_brown_fox
title Title case The Quick Brown Fox
train Train case The-Quick-Brown-Fox
upper Upper case THE QUICK BROWN FOX

Configuration in composer.json

If you choose to put your configuration in composer.json, place it within the extra property, namespaced under ramsey/conventional-commits, like this:

{
    "extra": {
        "ramsey/conventional-commits": {
            "config": {
                "typeCase": null,
                "types": [],
                "scopeCase": null,
                "scopeRequired": false,
                "scopes": [],
                "descriptionCase": null,
                "descriptionEndMark": null,
                "bodyRequired": false,
                "bodyWrapWidth": null,
                "requiredFooters": []
            }
        }
    }
}

📝 The properties in this example represent the default values.

Configuration in captainhook.json

If you choose to put your configuration in captainhook.json, you must provide it for each action you configure, like this:

{
    "commit-msg": {
        "enabled": true,
        "actions": [
            {
                "action": "\\Ramsey\\CaptainHook\\ValidateConventionalCommit",
                "options": {
                    "config": {
                        "typeCase": null,
                        "types": [],
                        "scopeCase": null,
                        "scopeRequired": false,
                        "scopes": [],
                        "descriptionCase": null,
                        "descriptionEndMark": null,
                        "bodyRequired": false,
                        "bodyWrapWidth": null,
                        "requiredFooters": []
                    }
                }
            }
        ]
    },
    "prepare-commit-msg": {
        "enabled": true,
        "actions": [
            {
                "action": "\\Ramsey\\CaptainHook\\PrepareConventionalCommit",
                "options": {
                    "config": {
                        "typeCase": null,
                        "types": [],
                        "scopeCase": null,
                        "scopeRequired": false,
                        "scopes": [],
                        "descriptionCase": null,
                        "descriptionEndMark": null,
                        "bodyRequired": false,
                        "bodyWrapWidth": null,
                        "requiredFooters": []
                    }
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

However, if you provide your configuration in composer.json, it is not necessary to also provide it in captainhook.json.

🚨 If using the Git commit hook functionality of Captain Hook, any configuration provided in captainhook.json will override configuration in composer.json.

⚠️ When using the standalone command (i.e. ./vendor/bin/conventional-commits), only configuration in composer.json will apply, unless providing the --config option.

Configuration in a Separate File

You may also store your configuration in a separate file. For example, you may store it in conventional-commits.json, like this:

{
    "typeCase": "kebab",
    "types": [
        "ci",
        "deps",
        "docs",
        "refactor",
        "style",
        "test"
    ],
    "scopeCase": "kebab",
    "scopeRequired": false,
    "scopes": [],
    "descriptionCase": "lower",
    "descriptionEndMark": "",
    "bodyRequired": true,
    "bodyWrapWidth": 72,
    "requiredFooters": ["Signed-off-by"]
}

When stored in a separate file, we won't know where to look for your configuration, unless you tell us, so you must still provide a small amount of configuration in either composer.json or captainhook.json, so we can find it.

Here's what this looks like in composer.json:

{
    "extra": {
        "ramsey/conventional-commits": {
            "configFile": "./conventional-commits.json"
        }
    }
}

And here's what this looks like in captainhook.json:

{
    "commit-msg": {
        "enabled": true,
        "actions": [
            {
                "action": "\\Ramsey\\CaptainHook\\ValidateConventionalCommit",
                "options": {
                    "configFile": "./conventional-commits.json"
                }
            }
        ]
    },
    "prepare-commit-msg": {
        "enabled": true,
        "actions": [
            {
                "action": "\\Ramsey\\CaptainHook\\PrepareConventionalCommit",
                "options": {
                    "configFile": "./conventional-commits.json"
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}
