how often do you check in and with what tool(s)?




Hello, i use Git Bash and check in very frequently.

it appears there is a range from "extreme often" to "extreme very seldom".

Examples:

{me, extreme often, Windows}  very granular, with a brief yet appropriate comment [like narrating a story] per commit-i change a few
lines of code,
Alt+Tab to Git Bash, Git Add/Commit,
Alt+Tab back to some coding tool (example LINQPad).
[generally, i check in one source file before moving to the next source file]


{not me, very extreme seldom} in some project, not at all granular, in batches such as 50 of 75 files that have been modified, all
are checked in with a single detailed comment as to the overall purpose of the batched changes.


QUESTION:  how often do you check in and with what tool(s)?

Thank you.
