What can GitHub CLI do?

Once you have it downloaded, open up your terminal and use the gh command:

The GitHub CLI beta currently allows you to do the following commands:

  • Pull requests: Using the pr command to checkout, create, list, status and view
  • Issues: Using the issue command to create, list, status and view
  • Help: Using help command 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:

GitHub for Visual Studio 2.3 was recently released and it brought new functionality that now allows you to add pull request comments directly from the IDE.

To get started you  will need the latest version of GitHub Extension for Visual Studio. Next open up a pull request from the GitHub pane and while viewing a file you can click on the left gutter (see blue plus button) to add your feedback, all without leaving Visual Studio.
