Installation

On Unix systems you have several options. Namely creating an alias or a symbolic link to gh.sh.

I prefer to create a symbolic link within /usr/local/bin/:

ln -s /Users/jason/Documents/workspace/gh/gh.sh /usr/local/bin/gh

Note: open my not work across all platforms. On some Linux distributions you can replace open to xdg-open.
