Note: Recent Changes

You no longer need to copy the style.css anywhere.

There is now a cache system. If you don't see cache files on the first dashboard load, make sure dashboard/cache/ is writable (it should be).

There are bound keys for the search feature: the enter key and down arrow key search down the list, and the up arrow searches up.


There are some customizations that you can do to VVV Dashboard

  1. change settings in the VVV/www/default/dashboard-custom.php
  2. create a custom.css and add custom CSS. This file is ignored when updating and autoloaded if exists.

Want the host list full view all the time with no scolling/overflow

create a VVV/www/default/dashboard/custom.css file and add this

.sites {
	max-height: 100%;
    overflow-y: auto;
    overflow-x: auto;
