A simple github cli, very handy!

Author: Robert Nowotniak 2020 <rnowotniak@gmail.com>

Usage

ghub  -h | help
ghub [ list ]
ghub create [ -d <description> ] [ -p ] <repo_name>
            -p  create a public repository (private is the default)
ghub delete <repo_name> [ <repo_name> ... ]
ghub info <repo_name> [ <repo_name> ... ]

Token generation & permissions settings

Generate your personal access token in github Settings -> Developer settings -> Personal access tokens -> Generate new token.

This is the direct link to your github personal access tokens.

Permissions required to manage (create/list/delete) both your private and public github repositories are "repo" and "delete_repo":

permissions

Save the generated token (40 random characters) in .token file (the exact path is defined in ghub / TOKEN_FILE variable).
