Personal dashboard

Flattr Button


The core reads the configuration and writes an HTML (or any other text-based format) file with a configured name. It doesn't take any command line arguments and if everything goes well, doesn't write anything to the standard error and output. This makes it perfect to run it from cron on UNIX-like systems or Task Scheduler on Windows.

Setup and install

  1. Install the dependencies if necessary (see below).
  2. Create a new directory / folder and check out the repository into it.
  3. Copy the dashboard.sample.conf to ~/.config/dnet/dashboard.conf and modify it to your needs.
  4. You can now test it by running python

Module interface

A module named foobar should be in a file named There should be at least one class named Foobar with a constructor that takes no parameters. An instance of this class must have a getTodo() method which also takes no parameters and returns the list of todos in the following format. Todos are stored as a list of dictionaries, each of these should contain at least a title, a subtitle and a link item.

For persistence, the Config class in the config module should be used, which extends the QSettings class with a constructor that takes no parameters. This way, configuration is stored in a standard way, commonplace QSettings methods can and should be used, most frequently setValue("group/key", value) and value("group/key"). It stores configuration using a native method of the platform, such as ~/.config/dnet/dashboard.conf on UNIX-like systems, and registry on Windows. Further information and reference can be found at
