What can I show on my dashboard?

You can display all kinds of things on your dashboards, and we're adding new widgets all the time. If you have a suggestion for a type of widget you'd like to see in Dash, please let us know!

Decorative Widgets


These widgets don't really show any data. They're just there to make your dashboard look good. Decorative widgets are a lot like the things you put on PowerPoint slides.
  • Images
  • Shapes
  • Text

Simple Widgets


These widgets show you live information that's updated in realtime. Simple widgets don't require any special data connections or authentication.
  • Clock
  • Weather
  • Twitter Search
  • News
  • RSS Feeds
  • Apple App Store Rankings

Data Connection Widgets


These widgets show information from 3rd party services that already have your data. All you need to do is authenticate, and seconds later you'll be showing live data. There are widgets for all kinds of things like website monitoring, software development, and fitness.
  • Google Analytics
  • Twitter
  • Nest Thermostat
  • appFigures
  • Github
  • Chartbeat
  • Pingdom
  • Instagram
  • Fitbit
  • Withings Scale
  • Strava
  • Gmail

Custom Widgets


If you're a little bit techie, you can show your own data with custom widgets. As long as your data is formatted to match our API, you can display just about anything on your dashboards. Don't worry, it's pretty simple.
