This is not my idea (original Nutlope/aicommits), but I just created one to use Azure OpenAI instead of the base OpenAI resources and make it a .NET global tool.


You will need an Azure OpenAI resource. From the resource grab the following values and set as configuration variables on your machine.

  • AZURE_OPENAI_KEY - the key from your provisioned resource
  • AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT - the endpoint URI from the provisioned resource
  • AZURE_MODEL_DEPLOYMENT - the name you gave to one of your Azure OpenAI model deployments

These can be set as either Environment variables or in the user app local data directory under .aicommit/appsettings.json in the following format:

  "AZURE_OPENAI_KEY": "your api key",
  "AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT": "your endpoint",
  "AZURE_MODEL_DEPLOYMENT": "your name of your model deployment"

The location for this would be in:

  • Windows - %localappdata% which is usually C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local
  • macOS = /Users/[username]/.local/share


To install use the dotnet CLI command:

dotnet tool install -g TimHeuer.Git.AICommit


From a git repository if there are staged changes, just run aicommit from the repository. It will attempt to generate a message for you and offer you to see it before using for the commit message.

Data Sharing

Indeed this does take the text of your git diff output and send it to Azure OpenAI for completion. You should not use this if you have sensitive information.
