DevDash is a highly configurable terminal dashboard for developers and creators who want to choose and display the most up-to-date metrics they need, at one place.

Why using DevDash?

  • Pull and display the data in nice widgets using YAML (or JSON) config files, from:

    • Your own computer. From your own scripts and command lines too!
    • A remote computer via SSH.
    • Github.
    • Travis.
    • Google Analytics.
    • Google Search Console.
    • Feedly.
  • A lot of flexibility compared to other terminal dashboards:

    • Choose the widgets you want.
    • Place your widgets where you want.
    • Choose the data you want to display, the colors you want to use, and a lot of other things for each widget.
    • Don't want to personalize everything? Don't overwrite the defaults, then.
  • Unlimited amount of different dashboards with different configurations.

  • Data refreshed automatically via time ticks, or via a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + r by default).


You can watch a quick demo on Youtube.



You can simply grab the latest released binary file and download the version you need, depending on your OS.

Linux script

To download DevDash in /usr/local/bin, run the following in a terminal:

curl -LO | bash

Manual installation

You need to:

  1. Clone this repository
  2. In your terminal, run in the root directory of the project go build devdash.go

Getting started

  • If you run devdash without giving a dashboard configuration, it will:
    • Create a config for the default dashboard (default.yml) in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/devdash.
    • Display this default dashboard.
  • You have many examples here to modify this default dashboard or create your own from scratch.
  • Each dashboard need a config file. To pass this config file to DevDash, you need to use the option -c. For example: devdash -c default.
    • If you only pass the filename of the dashboard's config, it needs to be in the working directory or in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/devdash.
    • You can also pass a relative or absolute path to the config.
    • The dashboard's config can be written in YAML, JSON, or TOML.

The value of $XDG_CONFIG_HOME depends of your OS. Here are the defaults (if you didn't modify it):

  • Unix systems: ~/.config
  • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support
  • Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%

If you want to see even more real life examples, I've all of them in my dotfiles.


Thanks to MariaLetta for the awesome and beautiful Gopher pack! I used it for my logo on top.

DevDash was inspired from other open source projects:

Bugs and Ideas

If you have any idea to improve DevDash or if you see any bug, please open an issue.


Thanks a lot if you want to contribute to DevDash!

If you want to implement a new feature, let's speak about it first (by opening an issue) and decide if it fits DevDash scope.

Making Of

For anybody interested how I managed to develop DevDash on side of a full time job, and how I organized my time and kept my motivation, I wrote an article about that on my blog.
