A key part of building a dashboard in django-dashboards is components.

Components act as the building blocks of a dashboard with each component an element.

Generally components are added to dashboards as attributes

from dashboards.dashboard import Dashboard
from dashboards.component import Text
from dashboards.registry import registry

class FirstDashboard(Dashboard):
    welcome = Text(value="Welcome to Django Dashboards!")

    class Meta:
        name = "First Dashboard"


django-dashboards comes bundled with a number of predefined components but you can also build your own, use them dynamically and much more:
