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.



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

curl -u ‘your_github_username’ -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 Name of app.
