Dashkiosk is a solution to manage dashboards on multiple screens. It comes as four components:
A receiver runs in a browser attached to each screen and will display the requested dashboards. The receiver is quite dumb, it contacts the server and wait for it to tell which URL to display.
A server which will manage the screens by sending them what they should display. An administration interface allows the user to manage those screens individually or in a group.
An Android app that will run the receiver. This is mainly a fullscreen webview. There is also a Firefox app fulfilling the same purpose.
A Chromecast custom receiver which will run the regular receiver if you want to display dashboards using Google Chromecast devices.
The full documentation is available on ReadTheDocs.
A live installation, reset every hour, is publicly available:
Here is a demonstration video:
To run the server for development:
$ grunt serve
The Android receiver has moved to its own repository.
The "official" Chromecast receiver has app ID
5E7A2C2C and is hosted
gh-pages branch of this repository. To update it:
$ grunt dist $ git worktree add ~/src/dashkiosk-gh-pages gh-pages $ cd ~/src/dashkiosk-gh-pages $ git rm -r * $ rsync -rv --include '*chromecast*' --include '*/' --exclude '*' ~-dashkiosk/dist/public/* . $ git add * $ git commit -m "Update"
There is a
Dockerfile to run Dashkiosk inside Docker. In this
case, it is unlikely that Chromecast will work as expected. You can
run this container like this:
$ docker run -d -p 8080:8080 \ -v /var/lib/dashkiosk/database:/database \ vincentbernat/dashkiosk:latest
latest can be broken from time to time. You may prefer a
stable tag, like
