Whiskerboard is a status board for websites, services and APIs, like Amazon's AWS status page.
It is heavily based on Stashboard. Unlike Stashboard, it uses vanilla Django, so you aren't stuck using Google App Engine.
Have a look at the demo: http://whiskerboard.ep.io/.
Quick start guide
It's dead quick to get a status board up and running using ep.io.
Create an application on ep.io then run these two commands, replacing
myamazingboard with the name of your application:
$ pip install -r requirements.txt $ fab app:myamazingboard deploy
You might need to install pip. If you haven't got a virtualenv, you'll need to run it as root too.
Now head over to http://myamazingboard.ep.io/admin/ and login with the account you created when you deployed. You'll want to set the name of your board by clicking on "sites". Edit the single entry called "example.com" and enter a name for your board.
Back on the admin home page, click on "services" and add the things you want to report the status of (website, API etc). To change the status of a service add an event for it.
