What is it ?

Cocogitto is a CLI and GitOps toolbox for the Conventional Commits and Semver specifications.

Why ?

There are plenty of tools listed on the conventional commits web site to help you generate changelog, git hooks, commit template etc. Some of them are specifically designed for the Conventional Commits specification, and some of them are general purpose.

Cocogitto was designed to help you respect the conventional and semver standard and is not intended to be used in any other context.

It strives to be a set of simple, modern and fast command line interfaces.

Conventional commits

Note: coco has been deprecated in favor of the cog commit command.

To create conventional commits you can use the cog commit command. It has subcommands for the default fix and feat Conventional Commits types plus the angular commit conventional commit types.


# With cog
cog commit feat "add awesome feature"
# With git
git commit -m "feat: add awesome feature"

See User guide -> Conventional commits.


Creating a version with cog bump will perform the following actions :

  1. Determine a version number according to your commit history.
  2. Perform configuration defined pre-bump commands.
  3. Append the version's changelog to your repository changelog file.
  4. Create a version commit and tag it.
  5. Perform post-bump commands


# File: cog.toml
pre_bump_hooks = [
"echo {{version}}",
post_bump_hooks = [
"git push",
"git push origin {{version}}",
path = "CHANGELOG.md"
template = "remote"
remote = "github.com"
repository = "cocogitto_bot_playground"
owner = "cocogitto"
authors = [
{ username = "oknozor", signature = "Paul Delafosse"}
