StatBoard

Code Climate

A simple dashboard of records created this week, this month, and all time, mountable as a Rails Engine.

Basic Configuration

  1. Add gem to Gemfile:

    gem 'stat_board'
    
  2. Add initializer and route:

    rails g stat_board:install
    
  3. Configure models (in config/initializers/stat_board.rb):

    StatBoard.models = [User, Post, Comment]
    

Models can also be listed as strings if you encounter any loading order issues.

Routing

You can access StatBoard like this:

stat_board.root_url

Additonal Configuration

In config/initializers/stat_board.rb:

  1. Title

    StatBoard.title = "YourApp Stats"
    
  2. Basic Authentication

    StatBoard.username = "user"
    StatBoard.password = "pass"
    
  3. Displaying Data Graphically (true by default)

    StatBoard.display_graph = true
    
  4. You may provide your own reports, just place they into lib/stat_board/reports. Name of report should be *_report.rb. For example:

    # lib/stat_board/reports/day_report.rb
    module StatBoard
      module Reports
        class DayReport < Report
          def name(original_date = nil)
            "Last day"
          end
    
          def scope(model)
            super.where(["created_at > ?", 1.day.ago])
          end
        end
      end
    end
    

Issues

  • Models can be specified as strings rather than constants if you encounter loading order issues.
  • If you're using the Asset Pipeline, you'll need to add stat_board/bootstrap.css to your precompile paths.
  • If you have config.assets.initialize_on_precompile set to false, then you will need to add stat_board/highcharts.js to your precompile paths.
