Git Management CLI

About The Project

Have you ever wondered how nice it would be if you could code your project and when you think it is time to publish it on a version control host like GitHub you could just type a command line and it sets up your repository? That is what Git Management CLI, gitmgt, gives to you. Now you do not need to leave your project's environment to manually create you repository on GitHub, you just need to type gitmgt create -n awesome_repo and then push your project.
