This application is deprecated in favor of the new GitHubBuddy.

PReviewer is a desktop application designed to review github pull requests. The key feature is the ability to view differences in external diff tools such as Beyond Compare, KDiff, WinMerge or whatever you like.


In this release PReviewer provides the ability to

  • Display the title and description of the pull request.
  • List changed files in a pull request.
  • open the changed files in external difftool, for example beyond compare.
  • Show the differences inside the application itself.
  • comment on individual files, and submit a general comment. However inline comment on specific commit hasn’t been supported yet.
  • Compare commits in the pull request.


Navigate to here to download the setup.exe and install it following the instructions.

For Windows8 users: if your system complains Windows protected your PC blahblah..., then just click the More info on the screen, and press the Run anyway button.

  • Integrated markdown editor, probably a WYSIWYG editor, but this is low priority .
