  • Grafana

    The open and composable observability and data visualization platform. Visualize metrics, logs, and traces from multiple sources like Prometheus, Loki, Elasticsearch, InfluxDB, Postgres and many more.

    Thanks. Yes, that does seem to be the case. I found this old design doc [1] and discussion. Nifty feature for IoT to have more responsive alerts.


  • uPlot

    📈 A small, fast chart for time series, lines, areas, ohlc & bars

    > Can you now maybe talk a little bit about the React integration?

    do you have a specific question about it?

    there are some third party integrations now:

    in general, my stance on the topic has not changed. wrapping a fast imperative lib in a declarative framework facade has significant performance drawbacks. the main CPU & RAM cost of rendering a Grafana dashboard full of uPlot graphs is almost always React (by far).

    > Another question: are you considering making uPlot more accessible?

    this is a pretty complex challenge for data vis. i don't think this will ever be built into uPlot since the required code to make it actually good would be quite large.

    grafana in general will definitely need a better accessibility story, so we will have to figure something out and at minimum provide some kinds of fallback html summary tables. i imagine this will not be a trivial project. while it's easy to summarize a simple bar or pie chart with 5 series, how do you summarize 100 noisey trendlines with 2k points each? how do you summarize a histogram or temporal heatmap?

    at the end of the day, the data you feed into uPlot is already there for you to create an accessibility story externally. if you'd like to write some code that can take arbitrary data as input and output something sensible, please open a PR/discussion in Grafana or uPlot.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • giraffe

    Giraffe - a graphite dashboard with a long neck (by kenhub)

    In the years before Grafana the situation was not much better either. Graphite's render endpoint was decent and functional, but Grafana was the first that would let you easily make nice looking graphs and dashboard. I remember there was Giraffe[0] which came close and some other alternatives[1], most of them are dead now. I'm really looking forward to using the Library panels, a feature I always found lacking.

    I always found it a nice gesture by Raintank that they took in the Graphite project and are maintaining it to this day.


  • gdash

    A dashboard for Graphite

    Also Gdash[1] and many others

    I agree with your sentiment though.


  • php-weathermap-zabbix-plugin

    PHP Weathermap plugin for Zabbix (using Zabbix API)

    Agree, that would be nice.

    I use the weathermap as a standalone app with the following custom datasources:

  • network-weathermap-prometheus-datasource

    attempt to add prometheus as datasource for network-weathermap
