Cubist is a Cubism graphing sandbox.

Enter Cube or Graphite expressions, get charts.

Charts are chucked in local storage for later use.


  • server preferences and past expressions saved to local storage
  • comparison charts can be created by dragging one chart onto another (screenshot)

To install

$ npm install -g cubist


$ cubist

Using port 3000 already? Fine.

$ export PORT=1234; cubist


  • correct any node/JS stupidity (I rarely touch node or frontend code; much to improve)
  • use Backbone or other framework to clean up JS
  • add support for managing lists of servers
  • live editing for existing charts
  • kill data polling when charts are removed
  • UI for removing old expressions
  • change typeahead into an autocomplete based on functions and metrics available
