Use commit-msg hook to validate commit message

See original GitHub issue

While we’re thinking about automating some stuff using git hooks, an idea:

Use commit-msg hook to validate commit message according to Commit Message Guidelines. and drop the link if validation fails, and perhaps explain the problem.

Even validating just the first line would be helpful, as “typing” and “scoping” commits is not the standard practice.

prepush is kinda late, you’d have to rebase -i to fix, commit-msg lets you know as soon as you screw up.

This is exactly why I like running things before commit. Less hassles fixing bad commits (or adding new distracting one for fixes).

There is commitlint, I test it on a personal project coupled with lint-staged but I removed both because I hate waiting when I commit. CI are here for doing that kinds of stuffs.
