hub – command line for Github

Github is a wonderful tool but as a developer I’ve always wanted to be able to see an overview of issues and pull requests through the command-line. And now I can by using hub, a command line interface to github.

What I like is that because it’s open source, you can look at the source code. When you look at the tests that have been written for hub, you can read through and see all of the features that are available: https://github.com/github/hub/tree/master/features

The tests even show you how to use the feature, for example you can use hub to create issues in github. That’s right, you can use the command-line to create a new issue! This is how it looks: hub issue create -m “hello” -l “wont fix,docs” -lnope
