3 Minimalist Dashboards with Great Style

Updated November 26, 2018.

Dashboard from Stephen Few that combines several bullet graphs along with Edward Tufte’s sparklines to convey a great deal of information in a small amount of space.

1. CRM Salesforce with Dash

This dashboard allows you to instantly take your organization’s sales pulse.

This app uses Salesforce API in order to implement a custom CRM dashboard. The API is used via the module Simple-Salesforce and allows you to retrieve and push data.

2. Concentrated Content

This dashboard is a great example of how you can spice up your blog posts using Dash. Since Dash apps are 100% customizable, you can match your company’s theme easily.

This Dash app adapts the New York Times’ excellent report: A 3-D View of a Chart That Predicts The Economic Future: The Yield Curve. The slider component along the top keeps your content above-the-fold.

3. Natural Gas Well Production

Our final example showcases New York State’s natural gas well production data. The Dash app follows Few’s advice and “tells you precisely what you need to know in an instant.” Where is gas produced, and how much? The Dash app spectacularly accomplishes its goal of being a “virtual display of the most important information.”

This Dash app visualizes gas production values over time, responding to the user’s selections.
