   tea - command line tool to interact with Gitea
   version 0.8.0-preview

   tea command [subcommand] [command options] [arguments...]

   tea is a productivity helper for Gitea. It can be used to manage most entities on
   one or multiple Gitea instances & provides local helpers like 'tea pr checkout'.
   tea tries to make use of context provided by the repository in $PWD if available.
   tea works best in a upstream/fork workflow, when the local main branch tracks the
   upstream repo. tea assumes that local git state is published on the remote before
   doing operations with tea.    Configuration is persisted in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/tea.

There are different ways to get tea:

  1. Install via your system package manager:

    • macOS via brew (official):
      brew install tea
    • arch linux (gitea-tea-git, thirdparty)
    • alpine linux (tea, thirdparty)
    • Windows via MSYS2 (tea, thirdparty)
  2. Use the prebuilt binaries from dl.gitea.com

  3. Install from source: see Compilation

  4. Docker (thirdparty): tgerczei/tea

  5. asdf (thirdparty): mvaldes14/asdf-tea


Make sure you have a current go version installed (1.13 or newer).

  • To compile the source yourself with the recommended flags & tags:

    git clone https://gitea.com/gitea/tea.git # or: tea clone gitea.com/gitea/tea ;)
    cd tea

    Note that GNU Make (gmake on OpenBSD) is required. If you want to install the compiled program you have to execute the following command:

    make install

    This installs the binary into the "bin" folder inside of your GOPATH folder (go env GOPATH). It is possible that this folder isn't in your PATH Environment Variable.

  • For a quick installation without git & make, set $version and exec:

    go install code.gitea.io/tea@${version}


Fork -> Patch -> Push -> Pull Request

  • make test run testsuite
  • make vet run checks (check the order of imports; preventing failure on CI pipeline beforehand)
  • ... (for other development tasks, check the Makefile)

Please read the CONTRIBUTING documentation, it will tell you about internal structures and concepts.
