bypass pre-commit hook for merge commits

I setup some git hooks to run some gulp commands on pre-commit. I basically run jshint/plato. I basically want to bypass these for two cases:

  1. hotfix branches (master / hotfix)
  2. git merge (or find a way to do it in a way that doesn’t crash on the merge commit case)

The plato gulp command runs analysis on the source and produces a /reports/ directory that tracks complexity over time. If we do this on the hotfix branch it will result in merge conflicts when merging them back into development. Enough talking here is the simple hook:

  • How to check if a git commit author is valid
  • Unable to install the latest version of Gitlab
  • git commit error message: cannot open (a previously deleted source file)
  • Why does Eclipse show a Git repo for a Working Set?
  • How do I remove an author from a git repository?
  • What's the difference between git add '*.txt' and git add *.txt?
  • #!/bin/sh
    
    if git diff --cached --name-only --diff-filter=ACM | grep '.js$' >/dev/null 2>&1
    then
      git stash -q --keep-index
      ./node_modules/.bin/gulp jshint
      RESULT=$?
      git stash pop -q
      [ $RESULT -ne 0 ] && exit 1
      git stash -q --keep-index
      ./node_modules/.bin/gulp plato
      git add report/
      git stash pop -q
    fi
    
    exit 0
    

    Issue right now is if i have a merge conflict on “reports” and I resolve the merge All conflicts fixed but you are still merging. and then commit it runs the analysis again and stages the commit and when it commits it throws an error:

    /Users/Nix/work/project/.git/modules/somesubmodule/MERGE_HEAD’ for reading: No such file or directory.

    The directory does exist but there is no merge head…

  • How to retain commit gpg-signature after interactive rebase squashing?
  • Remote branch with multiple local tracking branches
  • Eclipse or Maven add /target to gitignore
  • Why does git sparse checkout leave behind directories?
  • smartgit Push: Not all refs have been pushed
  • Git: ability to stage a certain file content without touching the working tree
  • One Solution collect form web for “bypass pre-commit hook for merge commits”

    So I just found a command that I think i can use to detect the “merge_head”

     git rev-parse -q --verify MERGE_HEAD
    

    If rev-parse returns a hash that means we are currently in a merge state. I can use that to bypass this logic. But will wait for some better advice from more experienced individuals.
