Now out of beta and available for everyone, GitHub CLI 1.0 brings GitHub to the terminal where developers can manage their own workflows.

GitHub users can now officially tap into a new command line interface with the release of GitHub CLI 1.0. Previously available in beta mode since February 2020, GitHub CLI lets developers work and stay within a terminal session to script and create their workflows without having to switch from one process to another.

Since the release of the beta, developers used GitHub CLI to create more than 250,000 pull requests, perform more than 350,000 merges, and create more than 20,000 issues, according to GitHub. Now out of beta, CLI 1.0 is available to download for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

To clone the repository with which you want to work, use thegh repo clone owner/repocommand. To find the next item you need to work on, use the commands: “gh issue status” or “gh issue listassignee [yourname].” When you’re finished adding a feature or fixing a bug, create your pull request using thegh pr createcommand.

A teammate can check your pull request using thegh pr checkout [request number]” command, view the differences with thegh pr diff,” command, and review the change via thegh pr reviewcommand.

After the pull request is approved, you can make sure your tests pass with thegh pr checkscommand. You can then merge it directly from the terminal with thegh pr mergecommand. In this case, GitHub CLI can even delete your branch locally and on following the merge.

Then when it’s time for your next release, use thegh release create [tag name]” from the command line to make your creation accessible to everyone.

You can create aliases for any command in GitHub CLI with thegh alias setcommand. And you can access the GitHub API directly with thegh apicommand. As one example, you can share your aliases with a GitHub gist with the commandgh alias list | gh gist create.

As a result of the GitHub CLI beta, GitHub said that more than 80 community contributors submitted requests, including the following: 1) Adding metadata to issue and pull request views, 2) Allowing the selection of blank templates, 3) Filtering issues by milestone, mentioned, and author, and 4) Aligning repo create to other create commands.

Based on the feedback received during the beta phase, GitHub added several features to CLI along the way, such as 1) creating and viewing repositories, 2) configuring GitHub CLI to use SSH and your preferred editor, 3) closing, reopening, and adding labels, assignees, and more to issues and pull requests, and 4) viewing the diff, review, and merge pull requests.

GitHub said that it has more features planned for upcoming versions of GitHub CLI, including support for editing issues and pull requests and the ability to add comments. To get started with GitHub CLI, consult the online manual for the full list of commands and watch the YouTube video demo posted by GitHub.
