https://freeboard.io/ is a great tool to create dashboards and data visualization screens quickly and easily! Creators were nice to create is as a service and as an open source software (https://github.com/Freeboard/freeboard).
In order to easily test freeboard graphical components, I decided to create a data source that generates random numbers. It is simple and easy to use:
How to use:
- Download and install freeboard (works offline or on a server – simply download the files from freeboard github repository);
- Add the freeboardRandomDataSource.js file to js directory
- Edit index.html from freeboard main directory and add the following line before “Load more plugins here”:
"js/freeboardRandomDataSource.js", // *** Load more plugins here ***
Done! Now you can add a random datasource, or several random data sources:

Congratulations and thanks for the creators of https://freeboard.io/.
