Git hook utility for Rust codebases that lets you run any script for any git hook.

Functional, but still in Beta!

Quick Start

  1. Add rusty-hook as a dev dependency in your Cargo.toml file
  2. Run cargo test (to build your dev dependencies, including rusty-hook)
  3. Update the generated .rusty-hook.toml file with the commands you want to run
  4. Run git commit (or equivalent to trigger your git hook)! note the very first (and only) time you do this will take an extra ~30 seconds or so to finalize the setup


Just add rusty-hook as a dev dependency in your Cargo.toml file:

rusty-hook = "0.9.0"


When you add rusty-hook as a dev-dependency in your project, it will automatically configure the git hooks once it is built (for example the first time you run cargo test).

This will ensure that all of the client side git hooks are setup and available, and it will create a rusty-hook configuration file if one does not already exist.

The git hook script will ensure that the rusty-hook cli is available, so the very first time a git hook is triggered on your machine you will see a message indicating that the rusty-hook setup is being finalized which may take ~30 seconds or so:

Finalizing rusty-hook configuration...
This may take a few seconds...

(Optional) Install

You can also install the rusty-hook cli with cargo:

cargo install rusty-hook

You can optionally manually initialize any git directory by running the init command in any git directory to set it up:

rusty-hook init


You define your desired git hook configuration in the rusty-hook configuration file (a TOML file named .rusty-hook.toml or rusty-hook.toml).

Here's an example rusty-hook configuration that leverages multiple git hooks, including the pre-commit and the pre-push hooks:

pre-commit = "cargo test"
pre-push = "cargo fmt -- --check"
post-commit = "echo yay"

verbose = true


Under the [hooks] table, you can add an entry for any and every git hook you want to run by adding a key using the name of the git hook, and then specify the command/script you want to run for that hook. Whenever that git hook is triggered, rusty-hook will run your specified command!


Under the [logging] table, you can control whether to log the output of running your specified hook commands. By default rusty-hook will log the results of your hook script, but you can disable this behavior by setting the verbose key to false:

verbose = false


There's a few other git hook utilities available on crates.io, but none of them quite suited our needs so we made rusty-hook!
