I've got a new blog post up at Meedan (where I work). It's about longform git commits: what they are and how they can make your life as a software developer easier.

My spiciest git take is you should ban "-m" from your git repertoire and go full verbose invoking a text editor from the CLI to write commits.


@darius You probably know this, but you can set commit.verbose true in your config and never have to remember -v again! This is also really useful because you get it mid-interactive-rebase, when it’s a little harder to pass -v manually.


@mmcclimon cool, I did not in fact know this!
