A wrapper for Git that adds commands for working with GitHub-based projects. If set up as instructed by hub alias, one can use git to run hub commands. More information:

  • Clone a repository using its slug (owners can omit the username):

hub clone {{username}}/{{repo_name}}

  • Create a fork of the current repository (cloned from another user) under your GitHub profile:

hub fork

  • Push the current local branch to GitHub and create a PR for it in the original repository:

hub push {{remote_name}} && hub pull-request

  • Create a PR of the current (already pushed) branch, reusing the message from the first commit:

hub pull-request --no-edit

  • Create a new branch with the contents of a pull request and switch to it:

hub pr checkout {{pr_number}}

  • Upload the current (local-only) repository to your GitHub account:

hub create

  • Fetch Git objects from upstream and update local branches:

hub sync
