GitHub Copilot for CLI for PowerShell



GitHub Subsequent has this cool mission that’s principally Copilot for the CLI (command line interface). You possibly can join their waitlist on the Copilot for CLI web site.

Copilot for CLI gives three shell instructions: ??, git? and gh?

That is cool and all, however I take advantage of PowerShell. Seems these ?? instructions are simply router instructions to a bigger EXE known as github-copilot-cli. So in case you go “?? one thing” you are actually going “github-copilot-cli what-the-shell one thing.”

So this implies I ought to have the ability to to do the identical/comparable aliases for my PowerShell immediate AND change the injected immediate (take a look at me I am a immediate engineer) so as to add ‘use powershell to.’

Now it is not excellent, however hopefully it can make the purpose to the Copilot CLI workforce that PowerShell wants love additionally.

Listed here are my aliases. Be happy to counsel if these suck. Be aware the addition of “consumer powershell to” for the ?? one. I’ll make a ?? and a p? the place one does bash and one does PowerShell. I might even have it use wsl.exe and shell out to bash. Plenty of prospects.

perform ?? { 
$TmpFile = New-TemporaryFile
github-copilot-cli what-the-shell ('use powershell to ' + $args) --shellout $TmpFile
if ([System.IO.File]::Exists($TmpFile)) {
$TmpFileContents = Get-Content material $TmpFile
if ($TmpFileContents -ne $nill) {
Invoke-Expression $TmpFileContents
Take away-Merchandise $TmpFile
}
}
}

perform git? {
$TmpFile = New-TemporaryFile
github-copilot-cli git-assist $args --shellout $TmpFile
if ([System.IO.File]::Exists($TmpFile)) {
$TmpFileContents = Get-Content material $TmpFile
if ($TmpFileContents -ne $nill) {
Invoke-Expression $TmpFileContents
Take away-Merchandise $TmpFile
}
}
}
perform gh? {
$TmpFile = New-TemporaryFile
github-copilot-cli gh-assist $args --shellout $TmpFile
if ([System.IO.File]::Exists($TmpFile)) {
$TmpFileContents = Get-Content material $TmpFile
if ($TmpFileContents -ne $nill) {
Invoke-Expression $TmpFileContents
Take away-Merchandise $TmpFile
}
}
}

It additionally then provides to run the command. Very easy.
