Hi Guys,

Is there any way to automatically have a link to the GitHub issue number in the git commit message?

You just need to include #xxx in your commit message to reference an issue without closing it. With the new GitHub issues 2.0, you can use these synonyms to reference an issue and close it (in your commit message).

  • fix #xxx

  • fixes #xxx

  • fixed #xxx

  • close #xxx

  • closes #xxx
