Boards

Boards let you combine datasets, assets, and text into web pages which you can share and embed.

Creating Boards

Boards can be built using either Datapane's Python API, CLI, and the Web UI on datapane.com. Boards are comprised of blocks of Datasets, Assets (such as files, visualisations, and plots), and Text.

Text

A markdown block which you can use to document and annotate your board

Previewing

Boards have two modes, Edit and View. If you are the owner of the Datapane you will see the Datapane in edit mode by default. Toggling the Preview button will switch to view mode, showing you how your board appears to others.

Sharing

Boards can be shared with others by sending them the URL.

By default, boards and only visible by yourself. You can change the visibility to public by switching the Public/Private Toggle in Edit Mode.

Embedding

Boards can be embedded onto other platforms, such as your internal wiki, a web page, or social medium platforms such as Reddit and Medium.
