We email your commit messages

-M gets one days worth of commit messages, creates a beautifully designed email and sends it to a list of recipients.

Our Use Case

We work at Blimp and we have few beta testers. Every day we send and email letting our users know what’s new, what changed and what to look for. This keeps our testers engaged and they seem to feel like part of the team. Writing this emails took some time so we did what we do best, automate.

The side effect

Since our beta testers are reading a list of commit messages everyday, we started to feel self concious about what we write. The result is that we are making better commits and better commit messages. A version control system should be used as a communications tool. -M reminds us.
