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
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:victortrac/whiskerboard.git $ cd whiskerboard $ sudo pip install -r requirements.txt $ echo "SECRET_KEY = 'EnterABunchOfRandomCharactersHere'" > settings/local.py $ ./manage.py syncdb $ ./manage.py runserver
You might need to install pip.
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.
