Create a fork of a repository


gh repo fork [<repository>] [-- <gitflags>...] [flags]


Create a fork of a repository.

With no argument, creates a fork of the current repository. Otherwise, forks the specified repository.

By default, the new fork is set to be your 'origin' remote and any existing origin remote is renamed to 'upstream'. To alter this behavior, you can set a name for the new fork's remote with --remote-name.

Additional 'git clone' flags can be passed in by listing them after '--'.

--org <string>

Create the fork in an organization


Add remote for fork {true|false}

--remote-name <string>
