  • Tool or service for querying and exposing database through API
    I am looking for service or tool similiar to Metabase or Redash that allows me to add data source - for example Postgres connection, and create raw SQL queries that can be shared or exposed through API. So instead of keeping raw SQL code somewhere, my other service would call this tool e.g. http://microservice/query=1?param1=xx&page=2 and get the results from the DB. These calls are internal only and part of ETL... Source: 12 months ago
  • Did anyone try Openblocks for multi-tenant client reporting?
    I have tried Metabase, Redash beore (both self hosted open source versions), from my experience I find Metabase a bit easy to work with. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Best apps for transitioning from Spreadsheets to SQLite?
    Regarding visualization tools, sqliteviz has proven to be the best I've found so far. Their web app runs locally but has some trackers, so I run it locally via a simple, static HTTP server. Falcon and Redash seem like overkill for my needs. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Framework Laptops are now Thunderbolt 4 certified
    In addition to metabase there are redash[0] and apache superset[1]. They are more or less similar to metabase with some different quirks. You can also visualize quite a bit of data in grafana[2] as well. [0] [1] [2] - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • How to program an appealing data visualization, that automatically synchronizes itself? (Picture in comments)
    This is typically called a "dashboard" and there is a whole industry of existing commercial products (for example that are built around doing data analysis and visualization. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Adminer: Database management in a single PHP file
    There seems enough competitors when this looks like a tool from 20 years ago with limited functionality. If you somehow do not use the obvious GUI tools like TablePlus, Postico or SequelAce but prefer web based, there are some that actually look modern. For readonly usage, Metabase is good. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Grafana but better?
    Something like with connected to InfluxDB? Source: about 2 years ago
  • Professional DEs: how do you handle data that is "constantly" changing?

  • Ask HN: Tools to visualize data in SQL database?
    Redash( is pretty easy to use and get up and started with, especially if you know SQL. It's free and open source. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Show HN: GravaMetrics – Powerful Dashboards made simple
    I would go further and say, in a crowded space like that with some excellent free options (i'd also add to the list which is very pleasant to work with), you need to show what actually differentiates you from those free and mature solutions. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Open source DW?
    Its a bad idea use Redash as ETL and Data warehouse? Im not a data engineer just looking for a low/mid scale solution for experiment. Source: over 2 years ago
  • How often do you use SQL query tool or service in your daily work?
    Regarding the subqueries: try or, they materialize queried data so you can do a subquery multiple times. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Best Dashboard Advice
    Take a look at Apache Superset, Metabase and Redash. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Any recommendations for a product analytics tool? (On a budget)
    Redash is open source - Source: about 3 years ago
  • Apache Superset 1.1
    Also Redash which I find to be more powerful: - Source: Hacker News / about 3 years ago
  • Show HN: Django SQL Dashboard
    This is cool! I've had a lot of success with, which is a similar (though much more complex) project. SQL backend +visualizations can be really powerful and surprisingly flexible for building dashboards that aren't quite ad-hoc, but don't deserve their own standalone app and you just need to tie some input fields into SQL parameters. - Source: Hacker News / about 3 years ago
  • BI Application in Golang.
    Re:dash (acquired by Databricks but still BSD-licensed open source). Source: about 3 years ago
  • Self-hosted solution for easy data visualization?
    Not exactly for "input data" but using already existing in (almost any) database and create realtime charts: Redash. Source: about 3 years ago
