Project-Readme for this version

git + hub = github

hub is a command line tool that wraps git in order to extend it with extra features and commands that make working with GitHub easier.

$ hub clone rtomayko/tilt

# expands to:
$ git clone git://github.com/rtomayko/tilt.git

hub is best aliased as git, so you can type $ git <command> in the shell and get all the usual hub features. See “Aliasing” below.

Installation

Dependencies:

  • git 1.7.3 or newer

Homebrew

hub can be installed through Homebrew:

$ brew install hub
$ hub version
git version 1.7.6
hub version 2.2.3

Chocolatey

hub can be installed through Chocolatey on Windows.

> choco install hub
> hub version
git version 2.7.1.windows.2
hub version 2.2.3

Standalone

hub can be easily installed as an executable. Download the latest compiled binaries and put it anywhere in your executable path.

Source

To install hub from source:

$ git clone https://github.com/github/hub.git
$ cd hub
$ make install prefix=/usr/local

Prerequisites for compilation are:

  • make
  • Go 1.6+
  • Ruby 1.9+ with Bundler - for generating man pages

If you don’t have make, Ruby, or want to skip man pages (for example, if you are on Windows), you can build only the hub binary:

$ ./script/build

You can now move bin/hub to somewhere in your PATH.

Finally, if you’ve done Go development before and your $GOPATH/bin directory is already in your PATH, this is an alternative installation method that fetches hub into your GOPATH and builds it automatically:

$ go get github.com/github/hub

Aliasing

Using hub feels best when it’s aliased as git. This is not dangerous; your normal git commands will all work. hub merely adds some sugar.

hub alias displays instructions for the current shell. With the -s flag, it outputs a script suitable for eval.

You should place this command in your .bash_profile or other startup script:

eval "$(hub alias -s)"

PowerShell

If you’re using PowerShell, you can set an alias for hub by placing the following in your PowerShell profile (usually ~/Documents/WindowsPowerShell/Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1):

Set-Alias git hub

A simple way to do this is to run the following from the PowerShell prompt:

Add-Content $PROFILE "`nSet-Alias git hub"

Note: You’ll need to restart your PowerShell console in order for the changes to be picked up.

If your PowerShell profile doesn’t exist, you can create it by running the following:

New-Item -Type file -Force $PROFILE

Shell tab-completion

hub repository contains tab-completion scripts for bash and zsh. These scripts complement existing completion scripts that ship with git.
