In this quickstart, we will walk through how to turn any dashboard (or set of queries) into a GitHub repository that uses our query management API.


  • Python environment set up (check out Anaconda Navigator if you want somewhere to start.)
  • Have a Dune API key from the team/user who’s queries you want to manage (to obtain one follow the steps here)

Set up a new repo from the GitHub template

Use this GitHub template to create your own repository, then follow these steps:

  1. Generate an API key from your Dune account and put that in both your .env file and github action secrets (name it DUNE_API_KEY). You can create a key under your Dune team settings. The api key must be from a plus plan for this repo to work.

  2. Type your intended query ids into the queries.yml file. The id can be found from the link<query_id>/.... If you’re creating this for a dashboard, go to the dashboard you want to create a repo and click on the “github” button in the top right of your dashboard to see the query ids.

  3. Then, run to bring in all queries into /query_{id}.sql files within the /queries folder. Directions to setup and run this python script are below.

Updating Queries or CSV Tables

  1. Make any changes you need to directly in the repo. Any time you push a commit to MAIN branch, will save your changes into Dune directly. You can run this manually too if you want.

  2. For CSVs, update the files in the /uploads folder. will run on commit, or can be run manually. The table name in Dune will be dune.team_name.dataset_<filename>.

You can press the “github” button on your own dashboard to get a list of query ids, or you can just paste in any query ids yourself. The query id comes from the url,<query_id>/<visualization_id>.

Anytime you commit a change to the repo, it will now update your queries in the app too. You can run anytime to update the repo with any changes from the app.
