Short Description
Managing dashboards on various displays (especially those running on Android)
Full Description

Dashkiosk

Dashkiosk is a solution to manage dashboards on multiple screens. It
comes as four components:

  1. A receiver runs in a browser attached to each screen and will
    display the requested dashboards. The receiver is quite dumb, it
    contacts the server and wait for it to tell which URL to display.

  2. A server which will manage the screens by sending them what they
    should display. An administration interface allows the user to
    manage those screens individually or in a group.

  3. An Android app that will run the receiver. This is mainly a
    fullscreen webview. There is also a Firefox app fulfilling the
    same purpose.

  4. A Chromecast custom receiver which will run the regular receiver
    if you want to display dashboards using Google Chromecast devices.

The full documentation is available on ReadTheDocs.

A live installation, reset every hour, is publicly available:

Here is a demonstration video:

Development

To run the server for development:

$ grunt serve

Android receiver

The Android receiver has moved to its
own repository.

Chromecast receiver

The "official" Chromecast receiver has app ID 5E7A2C2C and is hosted
in the gh-pages branch of this repository. To update it:

$ grunt dist
$ git worktree add ~/src/dashkiosk-gh-pages gh-pages
$ cd ~/src/dashkiosk-gh-pages
$ git rm -r *
$ rsync -rv --include '*chromecast*' --include '*/' --exclude '*' ~-dashkiosk/dist/public/* .
$ git add *
$ git commit -m "Update"

Docker

There is a Dockerfile to run Dashkiosk inside Docker. In this
case, it is unlikely that Chromecast will work as expected. You can
run this container like this:

$ docker run -d -p 8080:8080 \
             -v /var/lib/dashkiosk/database:/database \
             vincentbernat/dashkiosk:latest

Using latest can be broken from time to time. You may prefer a
stable tag, like 2.6.1.
