Automatically lint/format code before commits

The discourse repository includes configuration for lefthook. This will automatically check any code before it’s committed to git, and alert about any issues. To get set up, simply enter your discourse development directory and run

yarn install
yarn run lefthook install

Files will now be automatically checked before committing. If there are any issues, the commit will be cancelled, and you will be shown a list of errors.
