GitHub Pull Request Monitor

Travis Marketplace Version Installs Greenkeeper badge

This extension uses the GitHub api to monitor the state of your pull requests and let you know when it's time to merge or if someone requested changes.

Statusbar items

Source code on GitHub:


  • Monitor all the pull requests for your account
  • Monitor a specific repository (and quickly switch between them)
  • Quickly open GitHub pull requests from VS Code
  • Colors and icons to identify pull requests that require attention


color green Green: there are no conflicts, build is passing (if any), reviews are approved (if any)

color red Red: opposite of green or pull request closed

color white White: waiting for status

color violet Violet: merged


Note: white icons can become green or red depending on the pull request state.


icon Open

icon Merged

icon Closed


icon Build passes

icon Unknown mergeable state


icon Approved reviews

icon Changes requested
