gh - The GitHub CLI tool
gh is GitHub on the command line, and it's now available in beta. It brings pull requests, issues, and other GitHub concepts to the terminal next to where you are already working with
git and your code.
We need your feedback
GitHub CLI is currently early in its development, and we're hoping to get feedback from people using it.
If you've installed and used
gh, we'd love for you to take a short survey here (no more than five minutes): https://forms.gle/umxd3h31c7aMQFKG7
And if you spot bugs or have features that you'd really like to see in
gh, please check out the contributing page
gh pr [status, list, view, checkout, create]
gh issue [status, list, view, create]

Comparison with hub
For many years, hub was the unofficial GitHub CLI tool.
gh is a new project for us to explore what an official GitHub CLI tool can look like with a fundamentally different design. While both tools bring GitHub to the terminal,
hub behaves as a proxy to
gh is a standalone tool.
