- Check out a specific pull request:
git pr pr_number
- Check out a pull request for a specific remote:
git pr pr_number remote
- Check out a pull request from its URL:
git pr url
- Clean up old pull request branches:
git pr clean
git-pr [-m|--merge] <number> [<remote>]
git-pr [-m|--merge] <[remote]:number>...
git-pr [-m|--merge] <url>...
Creates a local branch based on a GitHub pull request number or URL, and switch to that branch afterwards.
The name of the remote to fetch from. Defaults to origin.
GitHub pull request URL in the format https://github.com/tj/git-extras/pull/453.
- -m | --merge
- Checkout a merge commit against the branch the pull request is targeting. Because this feature uses a private API with which GitHub checks the pull request´s mergeability, it only works with the opened pull request. If the merge commit is not up-to-date, please visit the pull request web page to trigger the rebuild.
This checks out the pull request 226 from origin:
$ git pr 226 remote: Counting objects: 12, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (9/9), done. remote: Total 12 (delta 3), reused 9 (delta 3) Unpacking objects: 100% (12/12), done. From https://github.com/tj/git-extras * [new ref] refs/pull/226/head -> pr/226 Switched to branch ´pr/226´
This pulls from a different remote:
$ git pr 226 upstream
This does the same thing as the command above:
$ git pr upstream:226
You can also checkout a pull request based on a GitHub URL:
$ git pr https://github.com/tj/git-extras/pull/453 From https://github.com/tj/git-extras * [new ref] refs/pull/453/head -> pr/453 Switched to branch ´pr/453´
You could even pull multiple pull requests via the GitHub URL or the ID with remote specified:
$ git pr upstream:226 upstream:443 $ git pr upstream:443 https://github.com/tj/git-extras/pull/453
Note that git pr PR-A PR-B is equal to:
$ git pr PR-A $ git pr PR-B
Therefore, if one of the pull request is failed to pull, this command will still go ahead and pull the others. The final exit code will be decided by the result of the final pulling.
With --merge option, you could check out a merge commit:
$ git pr origin:755 --merge remote: Enumerating objects: 3, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (3/3), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done. remote: Total 3 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 0 Unpacking objects: 100% (3/3), done. From github.com:tj/git-extras bf7dd69..de6e51c refs/pull/755/merge -> pr/755 Switched to branch ´pr/775´ $ git log pr/775 --oneline de6e51c (pr/755) Merge bf7dd6...
To clean up old branches:
$ git pr clean Deleted branch pr/226 (was b96a8c2). Deleted branch pr/220 (was d34dc0f). Deleted branch pr/775 (was de6e51c).
