Commit message character count indicator


It is some people’s opinion that a good commit message has a subject of <= 50 characters and the body is wrapped at 72 characters. It would be nice to have an indicator of how many characters we are at. A vertical line at a location we can set in our preferences would be great. It would be even better to be able to have two vertical lines, one for the subject and one for the body.

Ah, I searched for “characters” in the forum to see if I could find anything, but I suppose “commit message” would have been better. Thanks!
