Gitmoji is an initiative to standardize and explain the use of emojis on GitHub commit messages.

Using emojis on commit messages provides an easy way of identifying the purpose or intention of a commit with only looking at the emojis used. As there are a lot of different emojis I found the need of creating a guide that can help to use emojis easier.

The gitmojis are published on the following package in order to be used as a dependency 📦.

Using gitmoji-cli

To use gitmojis from your command line install gitmoji-cli. A gitmoji interactive client for using emojis on commit messages.

npm i -g gitmoji-cli

Example of usage

In case you need some ideas to integrate gitmoji in your project, here's a practical way to use it:

<intention> [scope?][:?] <message>
  • intention: An emoji from the list.
  • scope: An optional string that adds contextual information for the scope of the change.
  • message: A brief explanation of the change.

Contributing to gitmoji

Contributing to gitmoji is a piece of :cake:, read the contributing guidelines. You can discuss emojis using the issues section. To add a new emoji to the list create an issue and send a pull request, see how to send a pull request and add a gitmoji.
