What can GitHub CLI do?
Once you have it downloaded, open up your terminal and use the
The GitHub CLI beta currently allows you to do the following commands:
- Pull requests: Using the
prcommand to checkout, create, list, status and view
- Issues: Using the
issuecommand to create, list, status and view
- Help: Using
helpcommand to see how to use the tool
When you first use it you will need to authenticate the GitHub CLI. As you can see here I will be prompted to open GitHub in my browser:
After authenticating the GitHub CLI you will be able to continue with your last command:
I needed to change directories to where my repository was and then I was able to list out my pull requests using the following command:
gh pr list
For more details about what can be done, check out the GitHub CLI manual for lots of examples on using each of the commands.
This is an early look at what can be done with the GitHub CLI, and because it’s still in early development the team would love for you to give the tool a try and then provide them feedback.

If you’re interested in the content from last year, here is complete listing of the 2018 sessions.
New this year is the ability to bring your student-aged family member (14-21 years old) to the conference for free! For details about this wonderful opportunity, click here. Space is limited, so register today. While attending the event last year, one of the Microsoft Executives brought his two daughters and it was awesome to see them take interest and engage with the speakers and product groups. I’m glad they made this available this year for all eligible students.
I went to Microsoft Build last year for the first time and loved the experience to see and try the latest technologies, to connect with peers, and discover new innovative solutions to build. I’m not able to attend this year but I’m hoping to go again in the near future. If you can’t attend, then you always have the option to watch it on demand.
If you’re interested in going, then Register for Microsoft Build now!
