Simple use

After the installation is complete, open the login pagelocalhost:8080, enter the following default account and password to log in successfully
User name: guest, password: 123456

Then, create a data source – > create a data view – > create a visual component (widget)

Note that the data created by DaVinci is written based on SQL. Before creating, you need to understand some common SQL syntax

Based on visualization components, it can form a dashboard or a large display

In addition, you can regularly send the created visualization components to the e-mail (schedule) through screenshots or excel

There is no problem with basically following the operation of the official documents. The instructions in the official documents are relatively concise and clear

DaVinci is currently a popular open source reporting system in China. It was relatively simple to install it at the beginning, because it was written in Java. I am familiar with it, but I encountered a small problem, that is, to install the screenshot driver. It has been a long time. Of course, if docker is used for deployment, it will be much faster, but due to the service limitations of our company, it is troublesome to download other people’s images for deployment. We can only use the images we already have, so we can only use Linux system scripts to deploy from the head.

After talking about the deployment, let’s talk about its experience. DaVinci feels that the interaction is very good, and all kinds of visual interaction are very good. In addition, there are two ways to compose a page: one is in the form of ordinary report, which can only put data components; The other is a special large screen page, which can not only put some data components, but also drag and drop some text, date, video and other components separately, which is more personalized. However, the data can only be generated by SQL. There is no simple interface to automatically generate SQL according to the table for query. There is a certain threshold for users who do not understand the syntax of SQL, and there is no function of data alarm. Only when the data float is greater than or less, can email or SMS alarm be sent. At present, DaVinci only supports timed task alarm, There is no alarm combined with the data fluctuation.

In general, DaVinci is a very good open source reporting system at present, which is applicable to most companies. Moreover, it is developed in Java as the back-end, and it is also very convenient to transform.

It seems that I haven’t updated it for a long time. I have dropped a lot of goals every week. This article has been written for a long time, mainly to get a video tutorial. I feel I should study the video clip well. Later, we will update the deployment and simple demonstration of other domestic open source reporting systems. Please pay attention!
