When mob encounters unpushed commits in the base branch, the tool now provides help for the user to fix this immediately.
Improves console output when using mob break 5 in combination with https://timer.mob.sh
Gives the user the chance to name their final commit after mob done --no-squash
When having set MOB_TIMER_ROOM the local timer keeps on working. To disable the local timer altogether, please disable it via export MOB_TIMER_LOCAL=false.
Improved message when nothing to commit (Thanks to @seanpoulter for https://github.com/remotemobprogramming/mob/pull/202)
NEW create a team room on https://timer.mob.sh to have a team timer. Set MOB_TIMER_ROOM to the name of your team room and mob will automatically send timer requests to your team room. Mob now even supports breaks with mob break <minutes>.
If you renamed the executable or use a symlink to use a different name, mob will detect the new name and use that in its console output.
Improves error handling when using mob start -i. When the working directory is a subdirectory that would be removed due to git stash the mob tool will tell the user about this and aborts with an error.
Fixes a bug which let mob version fail when run outside of a git repository.
Allow to override the text in the notification and the voice via environment variables MOB_NOTIFY_MESSAGE and MOB_VOICE_MESSAGE.
Allow to override the stash name used for stashing uncommitted changes via the environment variable MOB_STASH_NAME.
Allow to override the cli name of the tool via MOB_CLI_NAME so you can use pair, ensemble, team, or whatever you like best, instead of mob. Just install the mob tool, set an alias in your cli and set the environment variable MOB_CLI_NAME to the name of your alias.
Print current time after mob start. This helps when scrolling through the terminal to distinguish the mob start calls.
Show commit hash of WIP commits made by the mob tool on the console.
mob start --include-uncommitted-changes now fails fast. That means, if mob can detect any issue preventing it to succeed, it will exit BEFORE calling git stash. This will make error recovery much easier as one doesn’t have to think about applying any stashes by themselves.
mob next does not show the same committer multiple times in the list of previous committers.
mob next does not suggest the current Git user to be the next typist as long as there were other persons involved in the mob.
mob next performs a simple lookahead to also suggest persons who might have been absent only during the last mob round.
When user.name is not set in the git config, mob no longer shows an error but a warning with a help how to fix it.
Allows creating parallel mob sessions on the same repository more easily.
mob branch shows all remote mob branches currently available.
mob fetch fetches the remote state, so you have everything up to date locally. Helpful to combine with mob status and mob branch who don’t fetch by themselves.
When mob start fails, the timer no longer starts to run.
Less noisy output: Only show number of unpushed commits in output if there are more than 0.
Add experimental command mob squash-wip to squash any WIP commits in the wip branch into a following manual commit using git rebase --interactive with mob as the temporary GIT_EDITOR.
The order of the latest commit is now reversed, the latest one is shown last.
Add experimental configuration option MOB_WIP_BRANCH_PREFIX to configure the mob/ prefix to some other value.
The list of commits included in a mob branch is now truncated to a maximum of 5 entries to prevent the need for scrolling up in order to see the latest included changes.
Show more informative error message when mob <cmd> is run outside of a git repository.
Add environment variable MOB_TIMER which allows setting a default timer duration for mob start and mob timer commands.
Add automatic co-author attribution. Mob will collect all committers from a WIP branch and add them as co-authors in the final WIP commit.
added support for preventing mob start if there are unpushed commits
better output if one passes a negative number for the timer
The default MOB_COMMIT_MESSAGE now includes [ci skip] and [skip ci] so that all the typical CI systems (including Azure DevOps) will skip this commit.
Add --squash option to mob done that corresponds to --no-squash.
Fixes the default text to speech command on linux and osx.
Removed MOB_DEBUG environment variable (has been deprecated for some time).
Add environment variable MOB_REQUIRE_COMMIT_MESSAGE which you could set to true to require a commit message other than the default one.
Fixes a bug where you could not run mob start --branch feature-1 because feature-1 contained a dash.
Fixes a bug which prevented the sound output of ‘mob next’ and ‘moo’ on windows
Add optional --no-squash for mob done to keep commits from wip branch.
Add environment variable MOB_DONE_SQUASH to configure the mob done behaviour. MOB_DONE_SQUASH=false is equal to passing flag --no-squash.
Special thanks to @jbrains, @koeberlue, @gregor_riegler for making this release happen, obviously, in a remote mob session.
BREAKING: MOB_WIP_BRANCH_QUALIFIER_SEPARATOR now defaults to ‘-‘.
BREAKING: MOB_NEXT_STAY now defaults to ‘true’.
Proposed cli commands like mob start --include-uncommitted-changes are now shown on a separate line to allow double clicking to copy in the terminal.
Add way to configure MOB_WIP_BRANCH_QUALIFIER via an environment variable instead of --branch parameter. Helpful if multiple teams work on the same repository.
Add way to configure MOB_WIP_BRANCH_QUALIFIER_SEPARATOR via an environment variable. Defaults to ‘/’. Will change to ‘-‘ in future versions to prevent branch naming conflicts (one cannot have a branch named mob/main and a branch named mob/main/green because mob/main cannot be a file and a directory at the same time).
Adds way to configure the voice command via the environment variable MOB_VOICE_COMMAND.
Allow disabling voice or notification by setting the environment variables MOB_VOICE_COMMAND or MOB_NOTIFY_COMMAND to an empty string.
Fixes a bug where a failure in executing the voice command would lead to omitting the notification.
mob config now shows the currently used MOB_VOICE_COMMAND and MOB_NOTIFY_COMMAND.
Add mob next --message "custom commit message" as an option to override the commit message during mob next.
Adds flag --return-to-base-branch (with shorthand -r) to return to base branch on mob next. Because ‘mob’ will change the default behavior from returning to the base branch to staying on the wip branch on mob next, this flag provides the inverse operation of --stay. If both are provided, the latter one wins.
Adds flag -i as a shorthand notation for --include-uncommitted-changes.
Fixes a bug that prevented mob start to work when on an outdated the WIP branch
mob next push if there are commits but no changes.
Fixes a bug where mob couldn’t handle branch names with the ‘/’ character
Commit message of wip commits is no longer quoted (see #52)
Adds mob start --branch <branch> to allow multiple wip branches in the form of ‘mob//' for a base branch. For example, when being on branch 'main' a `mob start --branch green` would switch to a wip branch named 'mob/main/green'.
Adds mob moo (Thanks Niko for the idea)
Deprecated MOB_DEBUG in favor of the parameter --debug
Deprecated MOB_START_INCLUDE_UNCOMMITTED_CHANGES in favor of the parameter --include-uncommitted-changes instead
Show warning if removed configuration option MOB_BASE_BRANCH or MOB_WIP_BRANCH is used.
mob start on a branch named feature1 will switch to the branch mob/feature1 and will merge the changes back to feature1 after mob done. For the master branch, the mob-session branch will still work (but this may change in the future, switching to mob/master at some point).
Removes configuration options for base branch and wip branch. These are no longer necessary.
mob status added. Thanks to Jeff Langr for that contribution!
Removes zoom screen share integration.
Less git commands necessary for ‘mob start’
Mob automatically provides sound output on windows without any installation
Fixes a bug where boolean environment variables such as MOB_NEXT_STAY set to any value (including empty value) falsely activated their respective option.
Simplified mob start when joining a mob session. It uses git checkout -B mob-session origin/mob-session to override any local mob-session in the process. It reduces the amount of commands necessary and makes the mob tool more predictable: the origin/mob-session always contains the truth.
Removes mob share command. You can still enable the zoom integration via mob start 10 share although this is now DEPRECATED and will eventually be removed in the future.
mob start prints out untracked files as well
mob start --include-uncommitted-changes now includes untracked files in the stash ‘n’ pop as well
keying in an unknown command like mob conf will internally call mob help to print out the usage options instead of calling mob status
fixed a bug where overriding MOB_START_INCLUDE_UNCOMMITTED_CHANGES via an environment variable could print out a wrong value (didn’t affect any logic, just wrong console output)
Any git push command now uses the --no-verify flag
New homepage available at https://mob.sh
mob config prints configuration using the environment variable names which allow overriding the values
Fixes bug that prevented users wih git versions below 2.21 to be able to use ‘mob’.
