gh completion

Generate shell completion scripts


Generate shell completion scripts for GitHub CLI commands.

The output of this command will be computer code and is meant to be saved to a file or immediately evaluated by an interactive shell.

For example, for bash you could add this to your ‘~/.bash_profile’:

eval "$(gh completion -s bash)"

When installing GitHub CLI through a package manager, however, it’s possible that no additional shell configuration is necessary to gain completion support. For Homebrew, see

gh completion [flags]


  -s, --shell string   Shell type: {bash|zsh|fish|powershell}
