The beautiful full responsive uncompromising Dashboard for your metrics that matter.

This dashboard is developed with performance and minimalism in mind. It has a minimal set of dependencies – no relational database needed, only a Redis. Yet it is full featured with WebSocket technology for real-time streaming your data into the UI.

Getting started

Create a directory for your dashboard's components and initialize a Git repository.

mkdir mydashboard
cd mydashboard
git init

Set the $GIT_URI_PREFIX according to your needs and add the basic Armaturenbrett as a Git submodule.

git submodule add "$GIT_URI_PREFIX/armaturenbrett.git"

Define a list of $WIDGETS you may want to install

WIDGETS=(calendar departures logations time timecount weather who-is-home)

and add them as a Git submodules analog to the Armaturenbrett.

for widget in $WIDGETS; do
	git submodule add "$GIT_URI_PREFIX/$widget.git"

Change to your Armaturenbrett component, install dependencies and initialize it.

cd armaturenbrett
bundle install
bundle exec rails armaturenbrett:init

Install the $WIDGETS you have previously defined.

for widget in $WIDGETS; do
	bundle exec rails widget:install[$widget]

The directory mydashboard now contains a config folder, that holds everything you need to set up. For instance open the dashboard.slim file and render the installed widgets. The install output of the widget's install process or the widget's README will help you.

Finally change back to the main Armaturenbrett component's folder and run

bundle exec foreman start

in order to launch your dashboard.

Generate an authentification token by running

bundle exec rails armaturenbrett:generate_auth_token

to be able to acces your dashboard under

Production deployment

Commit your configuration of mydashboard at will and deploy it with

git clone --recursive

to any desired origin.

Widget administration

Install a widget

Simply add a widget as a Git submodule and install it with the Rails task.

git submodule add
cd armaturenbrett
bundle exec rails widget:install[mywidget]

Uninstall a widget

Uninstall the widget with the Rails task.

cd armaturenbrett
bundle exec rails widget:uninstall[mywidget]

You also may want to remove the Git submodule afterwards.

Update a widget

Update your widgets with Git as they are submodules and reinstall it. Make sure you have a backup of your configuration.

git submodule update mywidget
cd armaturenbrett
bundle exec rails widget:reinstall[mywidget]
You can’t perform that action at this time.
