Commit Fast, Ship Faster


If you prefer not to type a commit message every time, you can set a default message for all commits. You can do this by changing the settings in VS Code. Here's how to make these changes:

  1. Edit the Task in .vscode/tasks.json:
    • Open your project in VS Code.
    • Open the .vscode folder in your project root (create it if it doesn't exist).
    • Create or edit the tasks.json file within the .vscode folder.
    • Replace the content of tasks.json with the following:
        "version": "2.0.0",
        "tasks": [
            "label": "git add, commit, and push",
            "type": "shell",
            "command": "git add -A && git commit -m 'Auto-commit' && git push",
            "problemMatcher": [],
            "group": {
              "kind": "build",
              "isDefault": true
            "presentation": {
              "reveal": "never",
              "panel": "dedicated",
              "clear": true
  2. Create a Custom Keybinding:
    • Open the Command Palette in VS Code (CMD + Shift + P).
    • Type Preferences: Open Keyboard Shortcuts (JSON) and select it.
    • In the keybindings.json file that opens, add the following entry:
        "key": "cmd+shift+enter",
        "command": "workbench.action.tasks.runTask",
        "args": "git add, commit, and push"
  3. Using the Shortcut:
    With your project open in VS Code, press CMD + SHIFT + ENTER. This will execute the git add, commit (with the message "Auto-commit"), and push commands in sequence.

This setup will allow you to push your changes with the specified keybinding without needing to input a commit message each time. Remember, using a generic commit message like this might not be the best practice for tracking changes effectively in a collaborative project.
