Gitlab and Gitbird

The Problem

We all know it, gitlab and twitter should go hand in hand - and even though gitlab does a great job in the world of helping us with the ci/cd integration - we still need say, maybe some sort of dashboard for all of your commits, in a nature that is more twitter focused.

You know, for easy access to tweet out a commit at any moment in any time-zone. Hence allowing for more relevant tweets on the twitter account. One that represents the product you are building at this very moment.

By doing this, you will be absolute most likely sure that you will receive more likes on any of your tweets.

Alas, gitlab, github nor bitbucket seems to be providing a such service. Good thing gitbird has been born! Even though it only provides that exact service, you should never fear. As gitbird only does that one, and does it perfectly satisfactory and perfect even.

The Bird to the Git

You might be wondering. Why on earth would any people invent such a single case monstrosity. The reason above, is the exact reason why - it didn't exists, and I for one, are always forgetting why, when and what I did commit, luckily I like to figure out a "small" sales speech for even the smallest feature. Gitbird captures what you wrote as the last commit message.

You know, you can use multiple messages in a single commit.

Gitbird gives me a great amount of minutes, for me not to run through every single commit I've made on gitlab-site itself. Why, becasue this can be quite tedious at times, to be honest. If you ask me.

Gitbird watch - if I may - the git repository in which your project is held hostage. Then, whenever you or any of your developers make a new commit and pushes it, gitbird get's noticed too! Thus, gitbird collects that last commit message, shows it on a neat dashboard, and later let you look through and choose which commit-messages that should be published for the world to see!

Let's summarize

This even work in the git repository branches, gitbird oversees it all, without looking at the code. Gets noticed whenever a new commit is noticed, gitbird puts it on the dashoard provided just for you. It's that easy!

Looking beautiful

One of the latest and greatest features of gitbird, is the abillity to tweet out images, along with the tweets for those who prefer to read, retweet and like specific tweets only.

An example of this, can be seen here: https://twitter.com/gitbird/status/1316907174933704705
