Nicer committing with Vim
Add this to your
.vimrc to automatically start in Insert mode when committing in Git. This will also enable spellchecking.
augroup commits autocmd! if has('spell') au BufNewFile,BufRead COMMIT_EDITMSG setlocal spell endif au BufNewFile,BufRead COMMIT_EDITMSG call feedkeys('ggi', 't') augroup END
Of course, you’ll need to make sure you’re using Vim as your editor when committing.
