NAME

App::GitHooks::Plugin::PrependTicketID - Derive a ticket ID from the branch name and prepend it to the commit-message.

DESCRIPTION

If you are using the App::GitHooks::Plugin::RequireTicketID to force entering a ticket ID with each commit, it can become tedious if you need to do a lot of commits with the same ticket ID on a feature branch.

To help with this, this plugin derives a ticket ID from the branch name and prepends it to the commit message.

VERSION

Version 1.2.0

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

This plugin supports the following options in the main section of your .githooksrc file:

        project_prefixes = DEV
        extract_ticket_id_from_branch = /^($project_prefixes\d+)/
        normalize_branch_ticket_id = s/^(.*?)(\d+)$/\U$1-$2/

Additionally, the plugin supports the following option in the [PrependTicketID] section of your .githooksrc file:

        [PrependTicketID]
        commit_prefix_format = /$ticket_id: /

project_prefixes

The list of valid ticket prefixes.

        [_]
        project_prefixes = OPS, DEV, TEST

extract_ticket_id_from_branch

A regular expression with one capturing group that will extract the ticket ID from a branch name.

        [_]
        extract_ticket_id_from_branch = /^($project_prefixes\d+)/

In the example above, if a branch is named dev1293_my_new_feature, the regular expression will identify dev1293 as the ticket ID corresponding to that branch.

Note that:

  • Prefixes used for private branches are recognized properly and ignored accordingly. In other words, both dev1293_my_new_feature and ga/dev1293_my_new_feature will be identified as tied to dev1293 with the regex above.

  • $project_prefixes is replaced at run time by the prefixes listed in the project_prefixes configuration option, to avoid duplication of information.

normalize_branch_ticket_id

A replacement expression to normalize the ticket ID extracted with extract_ticket_id_from_branch.

        [_]
        normalize_branch_ticket_id = s/^(.*?)(\d+)$/\U$1-$2/

In the example above, dev1293_my_new_feature gave dev1293, which is then normalized as DEV-1293.

commit_prefix_format

A regular expression that will be used to format the prefix of the commit message.

By default, this plugin uses $ticket_id: , but the following example would turn it into ($ticket_id) :

        [PrependTicketID]
        commit_prefix_format = /($ticket_id) /

METHODS

run_prepare_commit_msg()

Code to execute as part of the prepare-commit-msg hook.

  my $success = App::GitHooks::Plugin::PrependTicketID->run_prepare_commit_msg();
