Getting Started

DashboardJS

DashboardJS is a free, modular, responsive, open source dashboard component to display records in a sleek and modern way, built entirely in vanilla Js, with zero dependancies. You can have different tabs that show different recordsets complete with pagination, sorting, filtering, and you can switch views for each recordset between Card view, and List view.
DashboardJS is fully themeable, all you need is knowledge of HTML & CSS.
DashboardJS works either Synchronously (full data loaded and fed into the Dashboard component before initiation), or Asnychronously (Dashboard loads page by page through Fetch API).

Setting up

This is the basic HTML to load the dashboard
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>My Dashboard</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="./dashboardjs/css/rules.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="./dashboardjs/css/theme.css">
<script src="./dashboardjs/js/dashboard-all.js"></script>
<script>
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="dashboard-container">
</div>
<script src="./dashboardjs/js/load-dashboard.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Simplest Example:

load-dashboard.js:
var dashboard = new FutureLabs.Dashboard({
data: [{
"Name": "Jessie Bambergans",
"Status": "Married",
"Date": "1980-08-10",
"Gender": "Female"
},{
"Name": "Jerome Berner",
"Status": "Single",
"Date": "1980-08-10",
"Gender": "Male"
},{
"Name": "Ruba Jackman",
"Status": "Married",
"Date": "1984-01-05",
"Gender": "Female"
}],
templateURL: './dashboardjs/dashboard.html',
appendTo: document.querySelector(".dashboard-container")
});

Example with customization options for the tabs, fields & actions:

var dashboard = new FutureLabs.Dashboard({
// The Dashboard Language (will use the translation objects in each config property to translate)
// 'en-US' is the default langauge when the language property is ommitted
language: "en-US",
config: {

urlTarget: "_blank",
},
initialActiveTab: "User Profiles",
tabs: {
"User Profiles": {
// translations for multilingual support
// This works for all config objects: tabs, fields, actions, ...etc
// Simply add the translations and pair them up to the language code that is passed to the dashboard in the config object
translation: {
"ar-AE": "ملفات تعريف المستخدم",
},
// The class name for the tab icon. You can use custom class names (add them to theme.css), or if you include the fontawesome library
// you can just use the icon classname from fontawesome (Supports fontawesome)
icon: "far fa-user",
// A brief description that will appear on top of each tab
// Can be just a string when multilanguage support is not needed
// Alternatively, can be an object with language keys as below for multilingual support
description: {
"en-US": "A list of all approved users",
"ar-AE": "قائمة بجميع المستخدمين المعتمدين",
