Have you ever needed to trigger a CI build but couldn't because manual re-trigger was not an option? If so, you might be tempted to make a meaningless change to your source file only to make a git commit just to re-trigger the CI pipeline.
What if I told you there was a better way to do it? 🧐
Empty git commit
Yes! You can make a git commit without making any changes to your source file(s) whatsoever. For example:
git commit --allow-empty -m "Trigger CI build"
