Spelling and grammar are very important. However, when in a rush, we tend to neglect these important aspects. Search engines and humans readers usually don’t appreciate content that includes spelling or grammatical errors.
This notion also applies to your code repository…
As such, let’s automatically spell check and fix our codebase with
cd my-code-repository/ ~/bin/misspell -w . git commit -am "fixed spelling"
-w: Overwrite file with corrections
Note: Be careful with overzealous fixes! You should review the changes before pushing, as:
- 3rd-party libraries often have many issues
- Localization files may be incorrectly flagged
- The package maintainer might not appreciate such a large commit
