Creating a Remote GitHub repository from Command Line

This is very simple, but a great tool to use.

Just create a shell script with this content.

#!/bin/sh

repo_name=$1

test -z $repo_name && echo “Repo name required.” 1>&2 && exit 1

curl -u ‘your_github_username’ https://api.github.com/user/repos -d “{\”name\”:\”$repo_name\”}”

Now simply execute the shell script.  You may need to run this line first.  

chmod +x git-create

Then run the script by going to the folder that contains the shell script file and typing this in.  Here’s an example.

sh git-create.sh Name of app.

This post is mainly here for myself so that I don’t forget this.
