Too Long; Didn't Read
GitHub released it’s own Command-Line Interface (CLI) so developers can now do everyday GitHub tasks from the terminal. With this new command, you can now view, create, clone, and view, view, edit gists, and work with pull requests and issues. The motive behind this was to move all of the developer workflow right to the terminal where we were already working with git. The GitHub CLI is meant to integrate well with git, which means your trusty old git isn’t going anywhere.
