gh extension

GitHub CLI extensions are repositories that provide additional gh commands.

The name of the extension repository must start with gh- and it must contain an executable of the same name. All arguments passed to the gh <extname> invocation will be forwarded to the gh-<extname> executable of the extension.

An extension cannot override any of the core gh commands. If an extension name conflicts with a core gh command, you can use gh extension exec <extname>.
