Well, there is even no plugin system. Not to mention a chatgpt plugin.

Not everything must be cluttered with halucination.

but surely having a commit message auto generated based on the code can only ever tell you what change was made - which anyone can tell from looking at the code anyway - and not why the change was made. So I am not convinced that ChatGPT can or should replace a proper human-thought commit message…

Absofuckinglutely not. I will delete Sublime Merge and never look back the second I detect any code-stealing, environment-destroying, amateur-code-spewing, slop-emitting con artist garbage fire products anywhere near it. Go make a LinkedIn post with a sixteen-fingered blue-and-teal robot on it with that shit and leave Sublime Merge alone.

G’day @softwareflow,

Thanks for sharing this detailed feedback - we really appreciate it!

From my perspective, this is definitely something that would be suited for a plugin once the plugin system is added to Sublime Merge. This would allow users to optionally enable this functionality.

Cheers,

Please, do not litter the code with AI-related “functionings”. Keep it lean and clean, as it is! Please.

Adding functionality not always ruin a software. Indeed almost anything could be an optional feature and no one have to worry about something is not active.
I love sublime merge just as it is … but I want more! Why not? Just don’t understand why people are sometimes so desperate against change.

Thanks,
Andrés
