Environment variables that can be used with gh
GH_TOKEN, GITHUB_TOKEN (in order of precedence): an authentication token for github.com API requests. Setting this avoids being prompted to authenticate and takes precedence over previously stored credentials.

GH_REPO: specify the GitHub repository in the "[HOST/]OWNER/REPO" format for commands that otherwise operate on a local repository.

GH_EDITOR, GIT_EDITOR, VISUAL, EDITOR (in order of precedence): the editor tool to use for authoring text.

DEBUG: set to any value to enable verbose output to standard error. Include values "api" or "oauth" to print detailed information about HTTP requests or authentication flow.
GH_PAGER, PAGER (in order of precedence): a terminal paging program to send standard output to, e.g. "less".

CLICOLOR_FORCE: set to a value other than "0" to keep ANSI colors in output even when the output is piped.
