Command-line access to GitHub via github3.py
This tool provides partial itneraction with GitHub and its API from the command line. This tool is far from complete or comprehensive.
If you would like command completion, look in the completion directory for your shell of choice. If you don’t see one for your shell, feel free to send a pull request adding one! Note: The current bash completion is imperfect so feel free to improve on it and send pull requests.
To get a comprehensive look at the following commands, use their help pages like below.
