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 action!

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

You can also validate the commit message using the following command:

./vendor/bin/conventional-commits validate "[commit message]"

If you don't provide a commit message in the command line, the command will prompt you for it.

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

./vendor/bin/conventional-commits

CaptainHook Action

To use ramsey/conventional-commits with CaptainHook as part of your commit-msg and/or prepare-commit-msg Git hooks, be sure to require CaptainHook as a development dependency.

Check out the CaptainHook documentation for more information on installing and configuring CaptainHook.

Validating Commit Messages

To use the CaptainHook action 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 action 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:

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:

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"
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}
