Create your own UI  with Dashboard 2.0

Finally I tried FlowFuse Dashboard 2.0 which was long in my todo list. I have to say, the new dashboard is really intuitive in comparison to the old one.

Below are my top three features:

  • The possibility to create UI widgets using Vuetify , which has a vast library of components. But you can also use ready-to-use widgets available in Dashboard 2.0.
  • Multi-user dashboard capability, which I haven't tried yet but seems like a much-anticipated solution for many of us.
  • Event-based communication - You can actually see the activities being performed on the dashboard through your debug/console.

There are many more features coming, which you can find here: https://dashboard.flowfuse.com

About the flow

  • FlowFuse is self-hosted on the RaspberryPi , subscribing to data from an IoT gateway via OPCUA.
  • The IoT Gateway from Turck captures data from a vibration sensor (MPB10) via an IO-Link master (from SICK Sensor Intelligence).
  • The Raspberry Pi is docked with SensorHub, giving me real-time values for room temperature, humidity, and luminance.
