Today we made an important step in Jolicharts’ still short history: we replaced the 4-months-old Clownfish release by Devil ray. Now, since we started we’ve been releasing 2 to 3 minor updates per week but this one was a big step. We just passed the first milestone of our long term strategy which is to become the must-have tool for web developers who need analytics in their app. So, what’s new?
- 3 ways to connect Jolicharts to your data
Data can from now on be transferred to Jolicharts by uploading files, connecting to databases or sending data using the API.
- Data can be kept on your own servers
If you don’t want to host your data elsewhere, keep it where it is right now. Jolicharts can be connected to your database (MySQL and PostgreSQL as of today) and will generate all queries automatically using the chart builder drag-and-drop interface.
- A powerful API
We’ve released the most important API methods. There are a lot more to come. You can try them out on the API playground. The detailed documentation is here.
- Embeddable charts and dashboards
Charts and dashboards can be embedded into your apps using a simple link. More about that here.
- A more powerful analysis of datasources
Even datasources with a lot of columns are now analysed in seconds in order to generate your queries efficiently.
- High-speed generation of dashboards, even with big amounts of data
We have improved our charting algorithms in order to display even big dashboards in a few seconds. You will also benefit from Jolicharts smart caching in order to reduce the time to display your charts.
- URL control of dashboards and charts to allow embedding
Dashboard and chart content can be controlled by defining filters directly through the URL. Read about it here.
