Tipboard - a flexible solution for creating your dashboards.
Because of its intended target (displaying various data and statistics in your office), it is optimized for larger screens.
A detailed, technical documentation for Tipboard can be found here.
Assuming Ubuntu or similar Linux distribution, some required packages need to be installed first:
$ sudo apt-get install python-dev python-virtualenv redis-server
Continue by creating a virtual environment that will help you conveniently separate your instance from what you already have installed in the system (let’s say we will name it “tb-env”):
$ virtualenv tb-env
Activate the created virtual environment with the following command:
$ source tb-env/bin/activate
Installation with pip
After creating and activating virtualenv, install the latest (current) version of Tipboard package available on pypi (“Python Package Index”) with the following command:
(tb-env)$ pip install tipboard
Next, you need to create a configuration template for your dashboard - let’s say we will call it ‘my_test_dashboard’:
(tb-env)$ tipboard create_project my_test_dashboard
This command will create .tipboard directory in your home dir and will fill it with default settings for your dashboard.
To verify your installation, launch this command:
(tb-env)$ tipboard runserver
If you see the message Listening on port... instead of any errors, it means that installation was successful and you may now configure your newly installed Tipboard’s instance. You may also point your favourite web browser to http://localhost:7272 to see the current state of your dashboard.
