Flimflam dashboard component comprised of a main panel and two side panels

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import ffDashboard from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/ff-dashboard';



The ff-dashboard component is a flimflam component comprised of a header, a main panel, a left panel and a right panel. As a user of the component, you just have to set the dashboard's displayPanel$ stream to either 'main', 'right' or 'left'. Some CSS is included but only for functional styling (as opposed to aesthetic styling). I recommend using postcss-import for importing the CSS.

You can see an example of the dashboard here. The example uses some minimal aesthetic styling.

Getting started

In the parent state's init function, initialize the dashboard by calling its init function.

import dashboard from 'ff-dashboard'
import flyd from 'flyd'
import flydMergeall from 'flyd/module/mergeall'

const init = _ => {
  const state = {
    openLeftPanel$: flyd.stream()
  , openRightPanel$: flyd.stream()
  , openMainPanel$: flyd.stream()
  const displayPanel$ = flydMergeall([
      flyd.map(_ => 'left', state.openLeftPanel$)
    , flyd.map(_ => 'right', state.openRightPanel$)
    , flyd.map(_ => 'main', state.openMainPanel$)
  state.dashboard = dashboard.init({displayPanel$})
  return state

Here are all of the options that can be passed to the dashboard's init function:

key type default description
displayPanel$ stream flyd.stream('main') a stream, which when called can have the following strings as values: 'main', 'left', 'right'
leftPanelWidth number 300 left panel max width in pixels
leftPanelOffset number 80 min pixels between the right side of the screen and the right side of the left panel
rightPanelWidth number 600 right panel max width in pixels
rightPanelOffset number 0 min pixels between the left side of the screen and the left side of the right panel
transition string '0.2s ease-out' transition style to be applied to panel movements

Next, call the dashboard's view function:

const view = state => 
  h('div', [
    dashboard.view(state.dashboard, {
        header: h('header', [
          h('button', {on: {click: state.openLeftPanel$}}, 'Open Left Panel')
        , h('button', {on: {click: state.openRightPanel$}}, 'Open Right Panel')
        , h('button', {on: {click: state.openMainPanel$}}, 'Open Main Panel')
      , mainPanel: h('div', 'Main content') 
      , rightPanel: h('div', 'Right panel content')
      , leftPanel: h('div', 'Left panel content')

The dashboard's view function takes the dashboard's state as the first argument and an object with snabbdom views as the second argument. You can safely omit any of the views if you want. Here are all of the views that you can pass in:

  • header
  • mainPanel
  • rightPanel
  • leftPanel
