gh alias set listMilestones "api graphql -F owner=':owner' -F name=':repo' -f query='
    query ListMilestones(\$name: String\!, \$owner: String\!) {
        repository(owner: \$owner, name: \$name) {
            milestones(first: 100) {

gh createMilestone

gh alias set --shell createMilestone "gh api --method POST repos/:owner/:repo/milestones --input - | jq '{ html_url: .html_url, state: .state, created_at: .created_at }'"

Provide inputs from stdin.

echo '{
  "title": "Create a miletsone via gh",
  "state": "open",
  "due_on": "2020-12-31T23:59:59Z",
  "description": "Description foo bar"
}' | gh createMilestone

(I coundn't figure out a way to use gh alias arguments for title, due_on and description...)

gh closeMilestone 123

gh alias set --shell closeMilestone "echo '{\"state\": \"closed\"}' | gh api --method PATCH repos/:owner/:repo/milestones/\$1 --input - | jq '{ html_url: .html_url, state: .state, closed_at: .closed_at }'"

gh reopenMilestone 123

gh alias set --shell reopenMilestone "echo '{\"state\": \"open\"}' | gh api --method PATCH repos/:owner/:repo/milestones/\$1 --input - | jq '{ html_url: .html_url, state: .state, updated_at: .updated_at }'"

gh deleteMilestone 123

gh alias set --shell deleteMilestone "gh api --method DELETE repos/:owner/:repo/milestones/\$1"

I am trying to do pseudo gh milestone add 5 6 7 8 9 do you think it should be possible to do that ??

I have 100 PR (for each day of #100DaysOfCode) and I have fifteen milestone's (one for each week of the project) I want to set each of my 100 PR to the according milestone and don't feel like doing it 100 times on the web site...
