Git AI Rust License

Git AI seamlessly integrates ChatGPT with git hooks to automate commit message generation based on your staged files. Stage your changes and commit without a message; Git AI does the rest, crafting detailed commit messages that reflect the essence of your changes.

Key Features

  • Smart Integration: Leverages OpenAI's powerful Assistant API, expertly tailored to transform git diffs into insightful commit messages.
  • Contextual Learning: This feature maintains a dedicated thread for each project, allowing the assistant to build context over time and thereby improving performance and message relevance with every commit.
  • Local Optimization: Hosts an exclusive assistant instance on your machine, learning from all your projects to elevate the quality of commit messages throughout your development environment.
