gh release create
Create a new release
Create a new GitHub Release for a repository.
A list of asset files may be given to upload to the new release. To define a
display label for an asset, append text starting with
# after the file name.
If a matching git tag does not yet exist, one will automatically get created
from the latest state of the default branch. Use
--target to override this.
To fetch the new tag locally after the release, do
git fetch --tags origin.
To create a release from an annotated git tag, first create one locally with git, push the tag to GitHub, then run this command.
gh release create <tag> [<files>...]
# use release notes from a file $ gh release create v1.2.3 -F changelog.md # upload all tarballs in a directory as release assets $ gh release create v1.2.3 ./dist/*.tgz # upload a release asset with a display label $ gh release create v1.2.3 '/path/to/asset.zip#My display label'
