There are many things Dashing can do. It can follow a data source, process the results, and update the widgets in real time.

The dashboard panel supports drag and drop widgets re-ordering and is very easily customizable by editing some HTML and SCSS (CSS superset) code.

Under the hood, Dashing is powered by proven tools like Batman.js and Sinatra. It also comes with default support for Heroku, so dashboards can be launched online within minutes.

Shopify's Dashing source code is available on GitHub and a demo can be tested here and here.
