Install on Heroku

You can also deploy your own copy with Heroku's click-to-deploy button below:


Note: If you deploy to Heroku, you will want to enable these features in Heroku Labs for your app:

heroku labs:enable http-session-affinity

This will ensure that the app's use of WebSockets will work smoothly.

Installation (with Docker)

The best way to install Dashku with Docker is by using Docker Compose:

docker pull anephenix/dashku
docker-compose up

We will be working on getting linked containers to work with Dashku's docker container, as well as updating the container with the latest version of Dashku.

Manual installation (with Git)

git clone git://
cd dashku
npm install

Booting the application

mongod &
redis-server &
npm start

Seeding the database with widget templates

You can seed Dashku's database with widget templates by running this command:

npm run populateWidgetTemplates

If using docker-compose then run the following:

docker-compose run web npm run populateWidgetTemplates
