Lintje 0.8.0: Color by default, options file and more hints!
This Lintje release turns on color by default! Configure how Lintje is called with your own options file so you no longer have to specify the CLI options every time. There’s also a new hint for adding
[skip ci] to your commit message when only certain text files have been changed.
Read the full list of changes below.
- Link to Lintje.dev from the issue output in the terminal for more documentation and examples on the website.
- Support an options file with the
LINTJE_OPTIONS_PATHenvironment variable. This options file will be read every time Lintje is run, so there’s no more need to specify flags on the CLI every time manually. Set the
LINTJE_OPTIONS_PATHto a file path containing a options text file. For example
/Users/tombruijn/config/lintje/options.txtfile containing the content below.
More information can be found on the options file documentation page.
- Add the MessageSkipBuildTag hint rule to suggest adding a “[skip ci]” build tag when a commit only changes plain text files that commonly don’t require a test suite, deploy or other automatic build to be run. Saves on resources, time and money. Files that are checked include: README, LICENSE and CODE_OF_CONDUCT.
- Recognize “amend!” commits, like “fixup!” commits, as to be rebased commits and trigger the RebaseCommit rule.
- Add an extra line between message body and moved ticket number at the end of the body in SubjectTicketNumber suggestions.
- Color output is turned on by default if the system supports it.
- Change the suggestions symbol from a dash (-) to a plus (+) to better indicate the suggestion is an addition.
- Rename the NeedsRebase rule to RebaseCommit to match naming with
MergeCommit rule to indicate the type of commit rather than
the action that needs to be taken to resolve it. The NeedsRebase name can
still be used as an alias to disable the RebaseCommit rule with
lintje:disable NeedsRebase. This alias will be removed eventually.
- Better support for just initialized repositories. Lintje will no longer print an error for repositories with one commit.
