Deploy a dashboard#

What does this guide solve?

Whether you are still developing or have already completed your specification file, deployment creates a visual instantiation of your dashboard.

Run the code below to start a Lumen server that displays your dashboard in a browser window. Change <dashboard.yaml> to the path of your YAML specification file.

lumen serve <dashboard.yaml> --show

If you are developing a dashboard using a Python script (see Lumen in Python guide) instead of a YAML file, you can use the same deployment approach by supplying the path to the Python script.

lumen serve <> --show

Deploy during development#

While developing with Lumen, it is a great idea to visualize the progress of your dashboard. The code below uses --autoreload to refresh the view every time you save your YAML specification file.

lumen serve <dashboard.yaml> --show --autoreload
