I've begun relying on this tool when interacting with github, especially as it handles auth in nicer ways than google.

To set an alias: gh alias set clone 'repo clone' (I forget the repo part of that 100% of the time)

gh run watch is a handy command, it will give you a list of the actions currently running and let you watch it in the terminal until it's complete.

Ned Batchelder wasn't satisfied with that tool, so he created watchgha. The main benefit is that it shows you all the workflows associated with a PR instead of just one. Here's the two running side by side, gh run watch on the left and watchgha on the right:

You get a denser display with watch_gha
