gh alias set
gh alias set <alias> <expansion> [flags]
Define a word that will expand to a full gh command when invoked.
The expansion may specify additional arguments and flags. If the expansion includes positional placeholders such as "$1", extra arguments that follow the alias will be inserted appropriately. Otherwise, extra arguments will be appended to the expanded command.
Use "-" as expansion argument to read the expansion string from standard input. This is useful to avoid quoting issues when defining expansions.
If the expansion starts with "!" or if "--shell" was given, the expansion is a shell expression that will be evaluated through the "sh" interpreter when the alias is invoked. This allows for chaining multiple commands via piping and redirection.
- Overwrite existing aliases of the same name
- Declare an alias to be passed through a shell interpreter
