This is the project's idea hub. Smaller tasks are listed as GitHub Issues.
Like with most side projects, the idea for this project came from my own desire to have a single place to see all my relevant data. For example, I'm working with a todo manager, checking my calendar events or looking up the weather forecast. I also like to monitor stuff.
My personal goal is to have a dashboard with all the integrations I find useful to myself, but also create widgets other people might need. I also like to challenge myself technically with topics that I'm not familiar with.
This project is neither meant as a startup, nor do I have any plans to monetize it, yet. It might change in the future, but the project will remain open-source forever.
# Features and improvements
# Custom background image
A user test has shown that users like using a custom background image to personalize the board. It should be possible to both select an external URL and upload an image. A predefined selection of some images (or even patterns) would be nice.
# Redesign widget drawer
The current widget drawer is not practical. Here are some ideas:
- Widget search/filter to quickly find a widget.
- Widget description should be added, because the name alone might not tell the user what the widget does.
- Add a link to the documentation page for even more information.
- It's probably a good idea to use the new Drag from outside feature for simply Drag&Dropping new widgets onto the board.
- With more and more widgets, the categories should be reworked as well.
- Maybe highlight "most used" widgets.
# Multiboard support
Currently, only one fixed board can be used. Adding more boards to be able to switch between multiple views would be great. Automatically switching between the boards after x seconds might be a nice addition.
# Accounts support
All data is being stored on the user's device. This is really nice from privacy perspective, but inconvenient for syncing between devices.
# Widget ideas
Here's a list of rough widget ideas and integrations. They may or may not be implemented in the future.
