Add extension


It is not necessary to modify the Peakboard Box in any way. The extension is automatically loaded onto the Peakboard Box by the deployment process of a dashboard.

Write extensions yourself

If you want to adapt the extensions or write your own extension, you can also find the existing extensions in our GitHub repository and helpful articles e.g. here in the Peakboard help. The examples are kept simple and show the applicable architecture clearly. Each extension is available in source code (directory SourceCode) and as a file to install (binaries).

Installing your own Extension

To add your own extension to Peakboard Designer, you need the extension as a zip file. Click in the Extension management under [Data], [Add data source], [Extensions] and [Manage extensions] on [Add custom extension] (1), then select the zip file to install the extension.

Add your own extension

To apply the changes, you have to restart the Peakboard Designer. The newly added custom extension is now visible under [Data], [Add data source], [Extensions].
