HTML Quickstart

App screenshot

An HTML/JS template that gives you a good starting point for HTML-based Domo Apps.

Note that this is an UNOFFICIAL project, and is not supported by Domo Inc.

About this Quickstart

This quickstart is compatible with the latest version of the Domo Dev Studio, and provides the following out of the box:

  • A sidebar flyout, exposed by the wrench icon
  • A simple HTML page paradigm, with a navigation section across the top
  • Basic page transitions to help the app feel more responsive
  • Domo loading icon included - call showSpinner() and hideSpinner() from anywhere

Included Libraries

  • jQuery v1.12.0
  • jQuery UI v1.11.4
  • Select2 v4.0.1
  • domo.js v2.5.0

Getting started

  1. Ensure you have the Domo Dev Studio installed, as per the official instructions
  2. Download a copy of this project here (
  3. Extract it, and inside the folder, edit manifest.json to set your app name and version
  4. In the folder, git init or set up other source control
  5. Run domo dev to start the local dev server
  6. Run domo publish to push your app to the server

Adding Pages

Each page in the app is build as an independent HTML and Javascript file. While this isn't a perfect setup yet, it should eventually be possible to encapsulate all your custom app logic in the pages/ subfolder, so that the rest of the framework can be safely overwritten without losing your work.

To add a new page, create two files in pages/:

  • pagename.html
  • pagename.js

Include all the code required to render the page into the html file - including the CSS specific to that page. This content is only loaded when the page itself is requested, and is destroyed from the DOM when another page loads. The .js file is handled differently - it's loaded when the app itself loads. The only function you should include here is a function to load the page itself.

For the current version, you still need to integrate your new page into index.html in two places:

  1. In div#context-switcher, add a new hyperlink that calls the page load function
  2. In the <!-- Libraries --> section, add a reference to your page javascript

I'm hoping to have a dynamic setup for this in future versions.

As of 2017-07-29:

  • Responsive! Some elements should collapse/show differently on smaller card sizes or in a mobile view
  • Backend config data - allow the app to store per-instance config in a simple cloud key-value store
  • Testing required across all browsers, especially for DOM load
  • Allow for different transition effects
  • Implement a basic charting library
  • Have the app scan the pages/ folder to register pages automatically
