Good news! Grafana has announced their alpha version of public dashboards! Authentication was required previously to view the real time dashboards through Grafana so quite excited to see this option getting closer to release.
Local Grafana is running on my Kubernetes cluster but the remote version is going to run standalone in an Oracle Cloud ARM compute instance. So sorta cloud...sorta my own server lol! I've already setup NGINX to reverse proxy and am running NodeRED behind it, and installed Grafana and InfluxDB2. Just need to finish setup of Grafana and InfluxDB2 and I'll start publishing dashboards!
Can't wait to see the results. I told John about this and he is talking to one of his PhD students at the University about maybe using this software in a project. He says thanks for pointing this out. He will be using the MongoDB.
We are thinking of the next generation SkyWeather3 software going to Mongo as a database and to Graphana as the graphical pages.
Only word of caution is around public dashboards. Currently, you can not share a dashboard where you are using a dashboard variable, and also it appears you can only display 100 datapoints in a public dashboard for each panel on the dashboard in order to not overwhelm the server.
I'm serving from an Oracle Cloud compute instance. The instance has four CPUs and 24 GB RAM so ample processing power in my humble opinion. Curious if this limitation will be alleviated as the public dashboard functionality from alpha to beta to production.
