Add `pre-commit` hook that will run Commitizen on `git commit`

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description


pre-commit is a package manager for git hooks. The project allows hooks to be downloaded locally and run in an isolated environment. This allows for easy adoption of hooks written in a variety of languages and allows for quick adoption by contributors who are unfamiliar with any particular hook.

Possible Solution

This project can make itself pre-commit compatible by adding a .pre-commit-hooks.yaml file. You can use this file to make your existing prepare-commit-msg hook and the Commitizen project as a whole more accessible.

Hi @ShaneKosieradzki , if it helps, you can use husky to run pre commit hooks.

Install husky:

npm install--save-dev husky

Then run this to add a pre commit message hook:

npx husky add .husky/prepare-commit-msg "exec < /dev/tty && git cz --hook || true"

Note, you will probably want to add the resulting hook file to git:


I know that isn’t enhancing commitizen itself, but it does get you the pre commit hooks

Hope that helps!
