It's grown and expanded and now supports an extensive list of languages and actions and manual running of actions. But even at it's core, it's great for letting computers nitpick about whitespace and formatting, so that code reviews can focus on architecture and design. Anthony Sottile discusses pre-commit, for using locally by developers, and pre-commit...
