Limit Branches size name using pre-hooks

Hello, as the title says i'm looking for a way to limit the name of bitbukets branches to 50 characters.  Do you know any way ? i'm trying to do a bash script using Scriptrunner to make this as a pre-hook but i can't manage to make it work.

(Discl. I'm a developer working on this paid and supported app.)
