userexperience always better they have released a dedicated cli :
gh is GitHub on the command line. It brings pull requests, issues, and other GitHub concepts to the terminal next to where you are already working with
git and your code.
GitHub CLI is available for repositories hosted on GitHub.com and GitHub Enterprise Server 2.20+, and to install on macOS, Windows, and Linux.
If anything feels off, or if you feel that some functionality is missing, please check out the contributing page. There you will find instructions for sharing your feedback, building the tool locally, and submitting pull requests to the project.
If you are a hubber and are interested in shipping new commands for the CLI, check out our doc on internal contributions.
In addition to traditional
git operations, you can smoothely interact on an - everyday - growing set of GitHub features.
Hence you often have to upgrade (the cli warns you about new release availability).
Fortunately it is distributed through
brew wich makes uprgade process a real piece of cake
... making it possible to enjoy new features very easily.
To upgrade things are a easy as :
brew upgrade gh
See below how to upgrade (
v2.7.0 in my case):
