Travis CI commit message conventions


(Vanessa) #1

Question from a teacher I thought would be :cool: to hear from the group, esp @danwallach.

Travis CI has a convention of letting you put

[skip ci]

in commit messages in order to disable deployment for a commit. Might you or any of the team know of any other tools that have commit message-based conventions? We’re considering adopting something similar as we open-source our new auto-grading infrastructure and are just looking to be as conventional as possible.

I don’t really know, but I’d be curious to play with your auto-grader. I’m looking at adopting Geoff Challen’s Gradle-based auto-grader in my class, and it would be interesting to have multiple options.
