Move Repository from GitLab to GitHub using Command Line

You can migrate your code from a GitLab repository to a GitHub repository with a few easy steps.

First, you have to create an empty repository on GitHub. We can do it using the GitHub API. The following command will create a new private repository with the name TestRepo.

curl -u YourGitHubUserName -d "{\"name\":\"TestRepo\", \"private\":true}"

Next, you change to the directory with the source code you want to transfer and add the newly created GitHub repository to the git configuration.

git remote add github

Finally, you can transfer the code using the push command with the mirror attribute.

git push --mirror github

Now you have your source code on GitHub.
