Quick Start

To see DevDash in action and get familiar with the config file, you can easily configure the monitoring service as following:

---
projects:
  - name: Quickstart
    services:
      monitor:
        address: "https://thevaluable.dev"
    widgets:
      - row:
          - col:
              size: "M"
              elements:
                - name: mon.box_availability
                  options:
                    border_color: green

I would advise you to create a folder where you could create as many DevDash dashboard as you need.

For example:

  • Copy past the above config in a new file (monitoring.yml, for example)
  • Run DevDash: devdash -config monitoring.yml

Congratulation! You just created your first dashboard. DevDash will simply send a request every 600 seconds to https://thevaluable.dev (my blog) and display the response’s status code.

To see the power of DevDash, you can see some simple example of configurations here.
