GitHub CLI 0.9 allows you to mark pull requests as ready for review, view the diff from your terminal, provide lightweight reviews of others’ pull requests, and even merge pull requests all from your terminal.
- When you’re done working on a draft pull request, you currently have to update the status on GitHub.com. Now you can just use
gh pr readyand your pull request will be marked as ready for review.
- You no longer need to open your browser to approve a pull request. Use
gh pr diffto take a look at the PR’s changes, and if everything looks good, you can just use
gh pr review --approveand get back to your other work.
- And finally, when everything is ready to merge, you can use
gh pr mergeto choose which merge method you’d like to use, and merge your pull request. GitHub CLI will even offer to delete your local and remote branches after merging. We’re excited to see what you’ll release now that you can merge right from your terminal.
As you may have seen in the Satellite presentation about GitHub Desktop, CLI, and Mobile, our goal is to bring GitHub to your fingertips. You can merge pull requests right from your phone, and now you can merge them from your terminal as well.
