Git Commit Reminder for VSCode
From a project manager's perspective, keeping track of code changes and ensuring that they are committed and pushed to remote repositories timely is crucial. The Git Commit Reminder extension for Visual Studio Code is designed to aid developers in this task. With periodic checks, developers are reminded to commit uncommitted changes and push local commits, ensuring a streamlined workflow and minimizing the risk of unsaved or unshared work.
- Periodically checks if you have uncommitted changes and reminds you to commit them.
- If you have a remote repository set up, it checks for local commits that haven't been pushed and reminds you to push them.
- Allows you to set a custom interval for the reminder. If not set, the default is 30 minutes.
- Provides a command to reload the extension and apply any changes to the interval without restarting VSCode.
