GitHub CLI

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.

Availability

While in beta, GitHub CLI is available for repos hosted on GitHub.com only. It currently does not support repositories hosted on GitHub Enterprise Server or other hosting providers. We are planning on adding support for GitHub Enterprise Server after GitHub CLI is out of beta (likely towards the end of 2020), and we want to ensure that the API endpoints we use are more widely available for GHES versions that most GitHub customers are on.

We need your feedback

GitHub CLI is currently in its early development stages, 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

Comparison with hub

For many years, hub was the unofficial GitHub CLI tool.

gh

is a new project that helps us 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

git

, and

gh

is a standalone tool. Check out our more detailed explanation to learn more.
