Clubhouse is the best project management software for development that I have ever used.
This is a simple git hook that will prefix your commit messages if you are using the Clubhouse branch helpers. Given the branch
tomgamon/ch1234/some-ticket this will automatically prefix the ticket as below.
[ch1234] Rest of the git message
Just add it to your git hooks and ensure that the file is executable and away you go.
