Hi All,

A few hours ago I noticed that I’ve made a few very minor mistakes in some of my
recent commit messages for Org. Realistically I don’t think I’m going to stop
making occasional mistake any time soon, eve if they do become rarer. So, I’ve
whipped up a magit hook that looks at the diff and fills in a /correct/ skeleton
in the commit message buffer.

For example, here’s what I get if a queue a few of my currently unstaged changes
┌────
│ * lisp/org.el (org-place-formula-image, org-format-latex):
│ 
│ * lisp/org-macs.el (org-compile-file, org-async-queue):
└────

This currently works with elisp functions/variables/etc. and headings from
documentation files. I’m sure it has a few rough edges, but it’s looking
promising so far.

Maybe a few of you might also find it of interest?
<https://tecosaur.github.io/emacs-config/config.html#commit-message-templates>
(the relevant commit is <https://github.com/tecosaur/emacs-config/commit/d1e3042a>).

Another thought I’ve had is a commit lint function for flycheck to check some
extra things (two spaces after sentences, commit subject starting with a capital
letter, etc.), but I haven’t looked into that at all.

All the best,
Timothy

I suggest you look at `add-change-log-entry-other-window' and/or
`magit-generate-changelog'.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the suggestions. I happen to have already had a peek, but thought it
would be easier to make something from scratch than integrate those to create
the experience I wanted.

All the best,
Timothy
