System Dashboard for Raspberry Pi 4?

Thu Aug 20, 2020 7:21 pm

I just found this older repository, https://github.com/matematik7/rpi-dashboard , that is a system dashboard for the Pi. It hasn't been updated in years and the author said it should still work. I am going to give it a try but I figured I would ask if anyone has used something else similar? Up to date? Maybe a docker version?

Sample attached.

TIA!

Hey, can you update the results as you try them? I'm pretty keen to know.

Have you looked at something like RPi- Monitor ?

You may want to check out Conky. It's a little system monitor that sits on your desktop.

I was about to suggest Conky. The Conky program will appear on the desktop after launching the program. You can install Conky using the command in the terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install conky-all
You can always use the Task Manager to monitor computer resources. Task Manager does not include many computer monitoring features compared to Conky. You can add Panel Applets to the Task Bar to add computer resource monitors to the desktop. To add computer resource monitors to the Task Bar, right click on the Task Bar, and choose Add / Remove Panel Items.

Thanks for the conky reference. I will check it out. Currently I am running my Pi headless for this project but for connected Pis, conky could be a choice.

Yeah, if you want to go down that route, don't be surprised when your conky looks terribly ugly. And conky won't start automatically on boot either.
If you want my custom config, and have conky start on boot, the easiest way is with Pi-Apps. (a simple RPi app store I made)
