Purpose and Description

I have created this visualization extension to make it easy to create themable KPI tiles without having to create a custom visualization extension all the time.

You can create your own themes by just modifying a simple .json file (see below for further explanation).

Note:

This extension has some basic built-in logic to be responsive but is by far not that responsive as the native KPI object of Qlik Sense.

Screenshots

Installation

  1. Download the latest version
  2. Qlik Sense Desktop
  • To install, copy all files in the .zip file to folder "C:\Users[%Username%]\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions\ThemableKpiTile"

Configuration

You can use the following properties to define the behavior of this visualization extension:

Data

For every Themable KPI Tile the following options can be set:

  • KPI title - The title of your KPI
  • KPI - The KPI, any numeric or dual value
  • KPI comparison (numeric value) - The numeric value which is relevant to render the positive, negative or neutral color & icon defined in the template.
  • KPI comparison (displayed value) - Put the formatted comparison value here (use e.g. Qlik's num method).

Appearance - Layout

Choose either the Default Layout, Custom Layout or choose one of the Templates.

You can add additional templates by modifying the layouts.json file, located under ./config/ by adding new layouts as follows:

"orange": {
    "name": "Orange",
    "tileBackgroundColor": "#FFB304",
    "titleColor": "#fff",
    "comparisonPositiveColor": "#006600",
    "comparisonNegativeColor": "#CC0000",
    "comparisonNeutralColor": "#333",
    "comparisonPositiveIcon": "▲",
    "comparisonNegativeIcon": "▼",
    "comparisonNeutralIcon": "▶"
  }

In case of choosing "Custom Layout" the following settings can be used:
