sign commit with pgp

We can sign our commit with PGP to get verification that it was committed by us. On github we would also get a green "Verified" check mark in our commit.

Make sure you setup A PGP key on your local machine. See this article to set it up

Make sure you have a key that matched the email that you used for the commit. (eg:

add -S flag when you want to sign the commit

$ git commit -S -m "your commit message"
# Creates a signed commit

or add enable it by default

Tell git which key to use

git config --global user.signingkey ABC123
git config --global commit.gpgsign true

If you are having issue, GIT_TRACE=1 with your git comment

GIT_TRACE=1 git commit -S -m "your commit message"
