How many times has Dan asked me to run the spec test before pushing code to staging? probably 5. I'm sorry Dan.

The script I used as my pre-commit hook is available at

Oh, have I ever mentioned how much I dislike convoluted nomenclature? When I use 'git add', apparently I am adding a file or a change to the 'index', and it is the index that gets commited when I run 'git commit'

Gotta love git hooks

Excellent episode! I use git hooks (post-commit) to automatically push any commits to a dev server back into the main repository, and it's been a life saver.

I didn't realize you could cancel a commit with the right exit code, though - thanks for the tip!

That shirt is awesome! Unfortunately, I think Dan would kill me if I wore that to work.
