oxen

create GitHub pull requests from the command line

Requires node.js and npm.

Installation:

$ npm install -g oxen

Usage (within a git repo):

$ oxen

Options:

Usage: oxen [options]
 
Options:
 
  -h, --help               output usage information
  -v, --version            output the version number
  -m, --message [message]  set pull request message
  -t, --title [title]      set pull request title
  -s, --source [name]      define a source repository url that's different than the current repository's source (for forks)
  -b, --target [name]      define target branch of your pull request (defaults to 'master')
  -r, --reset              reset GitHub credentials if you need to change them
 

The first time you run oxen, it will ask for your GitHub info, and an optional question about the default target branch.

If your project typically pulls into a branch named "develop", setting this up will save you the trouble of typing

$ oxen -b develop

This is a work in progress...
