I first learned about git hooks in the context of conventional commits.

Today, I did a little more exploring into the hooks available and found the pre-commit hook. This hook can be used for all sorts of things, but I’m using it for linting by running pretty-quick before I’m able to commit.

The Prettier docs actually have an entire page on different ways and styles of using the pre-commit hook! Definitely worth a read.

In the mean time, my package.json now looks like this:

  "": "...",
  "husky": {
    "hooks": {
      "commit-msg": "commitlint -E HUSKY_GIT_PARAMS",
      "pre-commit": "pretty-quick --staged"
