Teaparty 2 dashboard

Simple dashboard written in Node.JS and AngularJS

Installation

  $ [sudo] npm install teaparty2 -g

Run Teaparty2 with your shiny config by setting env variable config like:

  $ config=my.json teaparty2

Setup

Database

Teaparty2 stores all data in the MongoDB database. You will need to install it and setup or use one of cloud-based solutions like MongoLab - free plan there is more than enough for dashboard.

Auth

By default there is no auth and everyone can change your dashboards and get access to widgets. Set config property admin to true and set admin credentials (see example below) if you want to restrict dashboards editing.

Logging

You can set logging level and also change log file location (default is teaparty2/logs). logging section is optional.

Dark theme

You have to rebuild Teaparty if you want to have a dark theme. See detailed instructions below

Example config

Teaparty2 will use default config (with invalid DB credentials) located in teaparty2/config/ if environmental variable config was not set during the launch. Here is the example config file:

{
  "auth": false,
  "admin": {
    "username": "admin",
    "password": "admin"
  },
  "server": {
    "port": 8080
  },
  "database": {
    "uri": "mongodb://ds0XXXXX.mongolab.com",
    "port": 10000,
    "db": "teaparty2",
    "username": "admin",
    "password": "admin"
  },
  "logs": {
    "level": "info",
    "file": "/var/log/teaparty/teaparty.log"
  }
}

Update widget data

At the current moment there are two ways to update widgets' data. You can choose one of them during a widget creation: Push and Pull datasources. Each widget has its own requirements to incoming data. Please look at widgets folder and check widget's reference .js to get an example of data can be stored in widget.

Push

Manually update widget data by using Teaparty2 API

To push data, send post request to http://<teaparty-url>/api/push/<widget-key> with a correct data object for this widget's type.

Here is curl example:

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"value": 35}' http://teaparty.local:8080/api/push/62465070-9fc0-11e4-a490-7fb3618741f2

Also there is node-teaparty Node.js helper module that can make life easier.

Pull

Teaparty2 will pull data from the remote URL via HTTP and update widgets if data was updated. Please note that right now there is no way to modify data on the fly (expecting in v0.8.0) so remote resource must provide data in a way widget can understand it.

Browsers support

Normal browsers and IE10+

Build

Checkout this repo and install everything you need:

npm install && bower install

Quick build and run develop server:

grunt serve

Quick build and run server with mocked data:

grunt mocked

To run API integration tests first you must create a spearate Teaparty config with server port 8081, the different database credentials and database.clean parameter enabled (it will wipe all the collection at the start), example config:

{
  "server": {
    "port": 8081
  },
  "database": {
    "uri": "mongodb://XXXXXX.mongolab.com",
    "port": XXXXX,
    "db": "teaparty2_test",
    "username": "test",
    "password": "test",
    "clean": true
  }
}

Then run this command to start Teaparty server and run tests against:

tools/api_integration_tests.sh <config_path>

Build AngularJS application, minimise everything static:

grunt build

To enable dark theme: rename web/src/styles/variables.dark.less to variables.less and rebuild an app

mv web/src/styles/variables.dark.less web/src/styles/variables.less
grunt build

Creating new widgets

To create a new widget, please read this post in wiki.
