Albert Dashboard

This project is incomplete, a work in progress.

A NodeJS Express app alternative to the now deprecated Panic Statusboard.

This app features stock widgets that can be configured within a config file in the app, as well as BYOD (bring your own data) widgets that require external data in the form of JSON blobs. Widgets refresh at custom intervals, keeping everything relevant.

App can stay open on a second monitor all day using Geektools, this shows the web page without browser menus etc. This makes the app appear to be a wallpaper, allowing you still use the second monitor as a workspace when needed. Because of the high contrast, this could be used as a custom magic mirror.

Stock Widgets:

  • Analog looking Clock
  • Time zones list
  • Calendar days
  • Weather (via the now restricted DarkSky API)


  • Table
  • Big Numbers
  • Custom HTML
  • Calendar Heat Map
  • Graphs
