Pretty commit messages via geordi

Geordi provides a pretty neat way to generate beautiful commit messages according to your stories in Pivotal Tracker:

geordi commit

Geordi reads from a .geordi.yml file inside your repo and connects to Pivotal Tracker to list started and finished stories with their title. Choosing one of them generates a commit message including id and title from pivotal tracker. For example:

[#1234567] CRUD Users

Trouble shooting

If you encounter a bug like 401 Unauthorized (RestClient::Unauthorized) your API token probably changed.

Check if your API token differs from the one configured for geordi:

  • In Pivotal Tracker you can find your API token in your Profile Information.
  • Geordi uses the one configured in ~/.config/geordi/global.yml (previously ~/.gitpt)

If they don't match, replace the API token with the one from Pivotal Tracker.

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
