pr-dash is a command line tool which allows you to monitor the status of all Azure Dev Ops pull requests you are assigned a reviewer of, right at home in your terminal. pr-dash was inspired by the iron code review system from janestreet, you can read more about that here: PR Dash: A command line pull request dashboard

pr-dash is currently tested on Windows and Linux.

Note: This tool is not created by, affiliated with, or supported by Microsoft/Azure DevOps.


Screenshot of pr-dash running in demo mode


To configure pr-dash you simply need to setup a yaml file with one or more projects/repo's to monitor for reviews.

The location of the yaml file differs based on the OS:

  • Linux: ~/.pr-dash.yml
  • Windows: C:\Users\USER-NAME\AppData\Roaming\pr-dash.yml (%APPDATA%\pr-dash.yml)

Example pr-dash.yml:

  - project_name: sample-project1
    pat: <your-personal-authentication-token>
    hide_ancient: true

  - project_name: sample-project2
    pat: <your-personal-authentication-token>

  # Would only work on windows
  - project_name: sample-project3


  • pat is optional when running on windows, if it's omitted the code will attempt to use AAD authentication.
  • You can read how to create an Azure DevOps PAT token here.

Now you can run pr-dash and try it out.
