So yes, I'm getting on the Weeknote train. They won't always be weekly, but a series of small notes, achievements and somewhere for me to dump my mind.

Git Hooks

Battled with git hooks after finding out that there is no such thing as a "pre-merge" hook unfortunately - I wanted to prevent our staging branch being merged into any other branch. I was able to use the "pre-commit" hook to prevent commits to the staging branch.

    So this isn't really "#7", it's more #6 part 2 as I am writing them both at the same time. However, this note tries to fill the July - Mid-September void. No Coding July and August kind of saw me down-tools on my side projects while I focused on the house. The…
