Dashboard installation error

#1

Hi,

I am trying to install a dashboard following the steps outlined at https://github.com/Athenolabs/dashboard

The command bench install-app dashboard returns the error below:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Does anyone know where I went wrong please?

Hi,

This application has not been updated in more than two years.

Maybe check directly with the maintainer of the application to see if it can still be installed on ERPNext.

Wow! Thanks for the info.
Please can you suggest how I can create a dashboard for my company? Do you know any plugin that works or is there document that shows a way to get the job done within erpNext?

Martin.

Unfortunately, I don’t think there is any integrated application except the one you tried to install.

You can try to use Metabase, it works great to create dashboards. Someone even wrote a step-by-step to use it on this forum: Visualizing ERPNext data using Metabase: Step-by-Step Guide

Good luck!

Alternatively joelios offers an Admin dashboard supported by libracore GmbH from Jan 2018 https://github.com/Athenolabs/libraDash

But no install notes to get started!
