Cubism graph composer


Cubist is a Cubism graphing sandbox.

Enter Cube or Graphite expressions, get charts.

Chart settings are chucked in local storage for later use.

$ npm install -g cubist
$ cubist

Using port 3000 already? Fine.

$ export PORT=1234; cubist

The defaults assume you're running Cube and/or Graphite locally. At the moment there aren't forms to edit this, but if you pop open your console it's just a matter of punching in:

  • 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 multiple servers
  • live editing for existing charts
  • accept chart settings from query params
  • kill data polling when charts are removed
  • support for comparison charts
  • UI bits to set the server defaults
  • UI for removing old expressions
  • change typeahead into an autocomplete based on functions and metrics available
