I am planning a small project which involves the use of online dashboards but I'm having trouble finding nice free ones.
By nice I mean, performant, appealing to the eye and flexible (I know I ask for too much and for it to be free, but I believe there has to be something out there.)

So far I have found this one which provides a free solution if self-hosted: https://redash.io/. There is nothing wrong with redash, I just want to know additional alternatives and not just stick to the first one I found.

The main idea of the dashboard solution I'm looking for is to be able to connect to a Postgresql database and display graphs/charts based on data in it.
It doesn't need to have scheduling or query storage, just something that can read data and transform it into graphs or tables I can then display online.

  • A dashboard for what? What do you need it for exactly, which features does it need?

  • Adding a short list of what is wrong with solution you have found may also help people recommend you something else. Here you have a question similar to yours and an example of "what is wrong" that helps to narrow the search / suggestion list.

Syncfusion Dashboard Platform is an option to consider.

Dashboards need to be designed using the Dashboard Designer (windows application) and published using the Dashboard Server (web application). Self hosted is the only option for now.

Syncfusion Dashboard

The dashboard platform and more are available for free through the community license program if you qualify. The licensing cost is not expensive even otherwise. Note: I work for Syncfusion.


Have a look at Subrion (https://subrion.org/). Easy to install, uses just php and mysql, can be installed with Softaculous. Not sure if it work with Postgre as I only installed yesterday and so am still discovering.

  • were you able to verify that it did/didnt work with postgres?
