PHP Dashboards v5.0 (Brand New Enterprise Edition) (Database Abstractions)

Last Updated on

This brand NEW PHP Dashboard v5.0 (Enterprise Edition), continues the evolution of my PHP/HTML5 Dashboard series, using the latest of my version 4 series PHP Dashboard v4.4 as the starting point, which in turn uses HTML5 Dashboard Designer for the Cloud as its foundation. NOTE: all versions of my PHP/HTML5 dashboard script series are still fully functional, for sale and supported and provides increasing levels of functionality to address the needs of different types of users, developers, business, private and public organizations. It would be good to review all 3 before deciding which version to purchase. The code bases (100% source code included) of each are quite different and you will need to maintain each separately should you decide to customize/tailor/modify these scripts to your needs.

This latest enterprise edition is quite exciting and was designed based on the hundreds of comments/emails I’ve received from you my envato customers about my portfolio of scripts – see handwritten notes 1 & 2. I’ve revamped the user interface to make it responsive and tablet friendly, allowing a dashboard community to now create dashboards using iPads, non-apple tablets or 2:1 laptops with or without stylus pen devices. I added more “draglets” (draggables on the carousels) to include more charts types, complete interactive dashboards and infographics. I created a marketplace so that a (private or public) community of draglet developers can contribute/sell what they have developed for others to use. I expanded the data feed options to include CSV, Excel, REST API, RSS and MySQL/Postgres databases for ALL charts. Finally, I created a data mart infrastructure to allow predefinition of reusable data feeds from multiple sources/servers on the internet.

The ‘Live Preview’ link (click here and above) shows a full featured version of the script in the cloud. Create some dashboards and colloaborate with your associates and have at it.

   Tablet Friendly
Desktop computers (soon even laptops) are becoming
obsolete. In version 5, I “re-laid out” version 4’s
drag & drop interface to be tablet / pen stylus friendly.
Any dashboard that can be built with your desktop and
mouse can be built on an iPad or similar tablet, with
or without a stylus (even though it is ideal to
use a pen).
More New Draglets
Version 5’s features new class of draglets that form
animated dashboard and infographic templates that
are both live and interactive. Version 4’s draglets
are mostly individual charts (highcharts, mapbox, d3js,
    Draglet Marketplace
To allow for extensibility and contribution, wordpress
has its plug-in architecture and drupal has its modules.
Version 5 has been rearchitected so that “draglets” can
be developed by 3rd parties to extend the functionality
of version 5. A marketplace for these draglets has been
developed so that developers can contribute/sell new
charts, dashboard or infographic templates, complete
dashboard applications for the community to use. Visit and stay tuned. Lots
more to come!
Data Marts
Version 5 comes with the ability to pre-define data
sources as data marts that can be reused across
different charts and dashboards. This is very powerful
new feature is described in more detail in the
documenation. Like version 4, version 5 data sources
can reside in other servers aside from where the
designer resides. This is by design and allows the
collaborative nature of the designer.
    MySQL, Postgres, Excel, CSV, Rest API Support
The data feed formats version 5 supports has been
expanded from JSON only to CSV, Excel, REST API
RSS, MySQL and Postgres databases. Version 4
started this for Highcharts. Version 5 has this for
all chart types available today including the
left nav draglets for full flexibility.
New Documentation

<strong>AUTHOR’S NOTE ON SCRIPT: </strong>see blog post – <a href="" rel="nofollow">Author’s Note: PHP Dashboard 5</a> 


Just a friendly reminder that there are two different license levels at The regular license is for single FREE user use. If you have multiple clients or charging clients for functionality from this script, then an extended license is the appropriate level. It’s only fair as I do spend a lot of time tuning these scripts. And more sales/revenues means I can code more features and it has come to my attention that many purchasers are using my script for commercial (for pay) purposes with just the regular license. Thanks for you support. Click for more details – Regular vs. Extended License Comparison
