       Code::TidyAll::Git::Precommit - Git pre-commit hook that requires files to be tidyall'd


       version 0.67


         In .git/hooks/pre-commit:

           #!/usr/bin/env perl
           use strict;
           use warnings;

           use Code::TidyAll::Git::Precommit;


       This module implements a Git pre-commit hook <
       Git-Hooks> that checks if all files are tidied and valid according to tidyall, and rejects
       the commit if not. Files/commits are never modified by this hook.

       See also Code::TidyAll::Git::Prereceive, which validates pushes to a shared repo.


       This class provides one method:

       Checks that all files being added or modified in this commit are tidied and valid
       according to tidyall. If not, then the entire commit is rejected and the reason(s) are
       output to the client. e.g.

           % git commit -m "fixups" CHI/
           2 files did not pass tidyall check
           lib/ *** 'PerlTidy': needs tidying
           lib/CHI/ *** 'PerlCritic': Code before strictures are enabled
             at /tmp/Code-TidyAll-0e6K/ line 2

       In an emergency the hook can be bypassed by passing --no-verify to commit:

           % git commit --no-verify ...

       or you can just move ".git/hooks/pre-commit" out of the way temporarily.

       The configuration file ("tidyall.ini" or ".tidyallrc") must be checked into git in the
       repo root directory i.e. next to the .git directory.

       By default, the hook will stash any changes not in the index beforehand, and restore them
       afterwards, via

           git stash save --keep-index --include-untracked
           git stash pop

       This means that if the configuration file has uncommitted changes that are not in the
       index, they will not affect the tidyall run.

       This class passes mode = "commit" by default to tidyall; see modes.

       Key/value parameters:

       ·   conf_name

           A conf file name to search for instead of the defaults.

       ·   git_path

           Path to git to use in commands, e.g. '/usr/bin/git' or '/usr/local/bin/git'. By
           default, it just uses 'git', which will search the user's "PATH".

       ·   no_stash

           Don't attempt to stash changes not in the index. This means the hook will process
           files that are not going to be committed.

       ·   tidyall_class

           Subclass to use instead of Code::TidyAll.

       ·   tidyall_options

           A hashref of options to pass to the Code::TidyAll constructor.


       This hook must be placed manually in each copy of the repo - there is no way to
       automatically distribute or enforce it. However, you can make things easier on yourself or
       your developers as follows:

       ·   Create a directory called "git/hooks" at the top of your repo (note no dot prefix).

               mkdir -p git/hooks

       ·   Commit your pre-commit script in "git/hooks/pre-commit" containing:

               #!/usr/bin/env perl

               use strict;
               use warnings;

               use Code::TidyAll::Git::Precommit;

       ·   Add a setup script in "git/" containing

               chmod +x git/hooks/pre-commit
               cd .git/hooks
               ln -s ../../git/hooks/pre-commit

       ·   Run "git/" (or tell your developers to run it) once for each new clone of the

       See this Stack Overflow question for more information on pre-commit hooks and the
       impossibility of enforcing their use.

       See also Code::TidyAll::Git::Prereceive, which enforces tidyall on pushes to a remote
       shared repository.
