Manage gh extensions
gh create extension create: Prompts for name and language: Script (bash, Ruby, Python), Go, or "Other precompiled" (C++, Rust, etc).
The repository name must start with
gh-. The rest of the repository name is the name of the extension. The repository must have an executable file at its root with the same name as the repository or a set of precompiled binary executables attached to a release.
Create a local directory called
gh-whoami, create an executable file (such as a bash script) with the same name as the directory. Note: Make sure that your file is executable. On Unix, you can execute
chmod +x file_name in the command line to make file_name executable. On Windows, you can run
git init -b main,
git add file_name, then
git update-index --chmod=+x file_name.
Write your script:
#!/usr/bin/env bash set -e exec gh api user --jq '"You are @\(.login) (\(.name))."'
From your directory, install the extension as a local extension.
gh extension install .
Verify that your extension works.
From your directory, create a repository to publish your extension.
git init -b main git add . && git commit -m "initial commit" gh repo create gh-whoami --source=. --public --push
