If I had known AI would write commit messages, I would have stayed as a developer.

Recently, I stumbled upon OpenCommit, a package that generates commit messages based on the files changed with GPT. Now, my skin is clearer, I walk with a brisk step, and I appreciate nature more. If this is what AI does for us, I'll welcome it with open hands.
My commit messages last week:
My commit messages now:
I’ve always admired how other people in popular open source projects and some of my peers take the time to write detailed commit messages and PR requests. In the past, I would often be impatient and write something quickly just to get it out of the way.
After transitioning to design full-time from development, the rare commits I make to my websites still don’t have any meaningful commit messages, which I didn’t mind until I had to go back to find something in the wall of commits.
But opencommit changed all that. As soon as I saw it, I went to OpenAI, got an API key, and tried it out. I have to say, I love the result! As you can see in the image above, it generates perfect commit messages, and I love it.
That’s enough of me raving about it - try it out for yourself -> github.com/di-sukharev/opencommit.
