If your main development environment is InteliJ IDEa or PyCharm, you can speed up writing commit messages via integrating YouTrack task right into IDE.

Benefits?

  • Automatic task status change -> In Progress
  • Commit message including task id and title
  • Context change lists
  • +10 to awesomeness ;-)

How to? (ET: 2 min) :

  1. Go to ‘Tools -> Tasks & Contexts -> Configure Servers …’
  2. Click + > YouTrack
  3. Enter your YouTrack server URL and your credentials
  4. Copy your nice query from YouTrack eg.

'project: {SuperCool Project} '

  1. Select task (from toolbar) you want to work on

And that’s it! Have fun ;-)
