Lion King Commit
Have you guys ever wanted to play the Lion King song when you commit files in git?
Well I know I did. I’m not sure about the rest of you but in my house my kids and I constantly sing the start of the song anytime we do something awesome.
So feel free to do this on your machine or maybe your buddies as a joke.
I’m on a mac so I did it for that. You’ll need brew installed.
## install xquarts for mplayer $ brew cask install xquartz $ brew install mplayer $ mkdir ~/.git/hooks $ cd ~/.git/hooks
You need to create a file called post-commit in the ~/.git/hooks directory. mplayer should play the file in the background so you don’t have to wait for the song to finish and hang git commit up.
#!/bin/sh mplayer -msglevel all=-1 ~/.git/hooks/lionking.mp3 &
Make post-commit file executable and add it to git config.
$ chmod +x post-commit $ git config --global core.hooksPath ~/.git/hooks
The next time you commit a file it should play the song.
You can download the lionking.mp3 file here
I have some other great sound files to try:
Have fun :P FU Rona!
