Kiteboard

A gem to make creating dynamic dashboards easy

Sponsored by tworedkites.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'kiteboard', '~> 0.1.0'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Then add this line to your application.js file

//= require kiteboard

Then add this line to your application.css file

*= require kiteboard

Usage

To setup a dashboard you will need a javascript file, a controller and a html page. Following is some example code to create a dashboard with a single number widget.

Controller

class DashboardController < ApplicationController
  def index
    kites = Kite.all

    respond_to do |format|
      format.html
      format.json do
        render json: { 'total-kite-amount' => kites.count }
      end
    end
  end
end

Javascript

$(function () {
  'use strict';
  window.Dashboard = {
    init: function() {
      setTimeout(function() {
        Dashboard.getData();
        Dashboard.init();
      }, 15000);
    },

    getData: function () {
      $.getJSON($(location).attr('href')+'.json').then(function (data) {
        Kiteboard.updateWidgets(data);
      });
    }
  };
});

HTML

<div class="gridster">
  <ul>
    <li data-row="1" data-col="1" data-sizex="1" data-sizey="1" id="total-kite-amount" data-widget="Number">
      <%= render 'kiteboard/number', {title: 'Total Number of Kites'} %>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

<script>
  $(function () {
    Kiteboard.init();
    Dashboard.init();
    Dashboard.getData();
  });
</script>

You will also need to add a line to your routes file to point to the dashboard controller
