Every new Dashing project comes with sample widgets & sample dashboards for you to explore. The directory is setup as follows:

  • Assets — All your images, fonts, and js/coffeescript libraries. Uses Sprockets Mincer.
  • Dashboards — One .jade file for each dashboard that contains the layout for the widgets.
  • Jobs — Your js/coffee jobs for fetching data (e.g for calling third party APIs like twitter). Name them *.job.js/*
  • Lib — Optional js/coffee files to help out your jobs.
  • Public — Static files that you want to serve. A good place for a favicon or a custom 404 page.
  • Widgets — All the vue templates for individual widgets.

Run dashing-js from command line to find out what command line tools are available to you.
