Cyboard - A realtime Wallboard Solution

Cyboard is a react based wallboard solution for creating realtime wallboards. It uses observable to generate the data on a nodejs server, passes this data in realtime to a connected webbrowser and renders This data simply using react components. The rest is up to you.

Getting started

First, we need to install cyboard into your project. It contains some basic react components and an executable to run our wallboard.

$ npm install cyboard

Now we need a configuration for our wallboard. This is done in a file called Cyboardfile.js. This file needs to export a function that returns a react element tree which represents the actual configuration. We need also to import all the data sources and widget components we want to use.

import React from 'react';
import { Cyboard } from 'cyboard';
import { createClockBackend, ClockComponent } from 'cyboard-clock';

export default () => {
    const currentTime = createClockBackend();

    <Cyboard>
        <Board name="My first Wallboard">
            <Widget shape={{ top: 0, left: 0, height: 2, width: 5 }} backend={currentTime}>
                {data => <ClockComponent {...data} />}
            </Widget>
        </Board>
    </Cyboard>
}

In this example we create a datasource for displaying a clock. Its just an observable which passes the current time to each full minute. This observable is passed to the Widget component. We are also passing a render function as children to this Widget component. Its job is to return a react element for the passed data object. Each time the observable emits new data, this function will be called and react will update to DOM according to the returned react element.

The Cyboard component serves as a wrapper for the hole configuration tree and needs no configuration.

The Board component wraps all widgets which should be displayed on a screen. It takes a name property which is used to refer to this board on the navigation screen.

Finally we launch our wallboard server using the cyboard CLI.

$ ./node_modules/.bin/cyboard start
