CommitGPT is a tool developed by RomanHotsiy that leverages the power of OpenAI’s ChatGPT to automatically generate commit messages. This tool is designed to streamline the process of creating meaningful and descriptive commit messages, thus enhancing the readability and maintainability of your code.
Here are four key features of CommitGPT
- Automated Commit Messages: CommitGPT uses ChatGPT to automatically generate commit messages based on your code changes.
- Customizable Configuration: You can create a .commitgpt.json file to customize the OpenAI model and other parameters used by CommitGPT. This allows you to tailor the tool to your specific needs.
- Customizable Template: CommitGPT allows you to create a .commitgpt-template file to change the template used to generate the prompt request. This means you can modify the template to fit your needs, ensuring the commit messages align with your project’s conventions.
- Integration with Git: CommitGPT runs git diff –cached to get the changes in your code, sends the diff to ChatGPT, and then presents the suggested commit messages to you. This seamless integration with Git makes it easy to incorporate CommitGPT into your existing workflow.
