Github Desktop Command Line

github desktop command line

GitHub Desktop is a user-friendly desktop application that allows you to interact with your GitHub repositories. It provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for common Git operations, such as committing changes, creating branches, and merging pull requests.

While GitHub Desktop provides a GUI for most common Git operations, it also includes a command-line interface (CLI) that allows you to perform these operations and more via the command line.

You can access the GitHub Desktop CLI by opening the application, then going to the “Repository” menu and selecting “Open in Git Shell”. This will open a command-line terminal with the current repository as the working directory.

Once you are in the command-line terminal, you can run Git commands as you would in any other command-line interface. For example, you can run “git status” to see the status of your repository, “git pull” to pull changes from a remote repository, or “git push” to push your changes to a remote repository.

Additionally, GitHub Desktop also allows you to open the command-line interface directly from the context menu by right-clicking on the GitHub Desktop icon in the taskbar and selecting “Git Shell”.

Please note that the command-line interface of GitHub Desktop is the same as the Git command-line interface, the only difference is that it will open the terminal in the current selected repository in GitHub Desktop application.
