For Developers

Target group: Developers

Welcome to our small dashboard introduction. We will explain how to create widget groups and implement widgets.


Difference between registration of widgets and implementation of widgets:

Widgets provide some functionality, e.g. collect system log errors over a time span. This functionality is provided by the implementation, a PHP class with some code. The registration is done in Services.yaml, in order to create the actual widget with provided functionality. During registration options can be set, e.g. the time span.

Registration is documented at Register new Widget, while implementation is documented at Implement new widget.
