In Holistics's dashboard, there are two types of widgets: Report widget and Text widget.
Report widgets are used to visualize your data. Since Report widgets are backed by datasets, you can freely explore the underlying data:
On the other hand, Text widgets are used to provide additional instructions, context, warnings... directly in your dashboard. The widget supports Markdown, which should serve your most common formatting requirements.
For example, adding dashboard section header:
Since markdown accepts HTML, you can use the
HTML in Text widget to have Holistics render HTML instead of just showing a text value, such as:
- Use HTML to create some inline CSS to style the text
- use HTML's
img/videotag to embed videos and images in your dashboard.
Here is an example code of how to add an image/video into Holistics dashboard:
<img src="insert-link" width="50%" height="50%"/>;
<video width="290" height="130" controls autoplay> <controls> <source src="insert-link" type="video/mp4"> </video>
Markdown inside HTML block
Since our markdown engine follow the CommonMark convention if the content has markdown inside an HTML block you need to specify HTML (followed by start condition and end condition as described here) to ensure the content renders correctly.
Here is an example of text widget content that has markdown inside HTML:
<div style="width: 500px; height: 500px; background-color: pink">;
# Heading level 1
