Set of custom widgets for the new dashboard module. Let's start creating your own!
This extension adds a set of widgets for the new dashboard module, available since TYPO3 v10.3.
It however only works with TYPO3 v10.4 and higher as the widget registration was reworked in this release.
If you are using a composer based TYPO3 project just run
composer require o-ba/custom_dashboard_widgets.
You can download and install the extension in the extension manager module or download the ZIP file from typo3.org and upload it in the extension manager module.
After the installation switch to the dashboard module.
If you have not set any dashboard yet, TYPO3 will create two dashboards automatically, which are defined in the presets. The default dashboard, shipped by core and the custom dashboard including all custom widgets from this extension.
If you have already created some dashboards, simply create a new one by clicking the
+ button in the dashboard
select tab bar and select
Custom dashboard. in the wizard. This will create the same dashboard mentioned before with
all widgets from this extension.
You can also add some custom widgets to already existing dashboards. This is explained in detail in the official documentation.
This extension is intended as an example extension for
- adding custom widgets (including custom templates, custom stylesheets, ...)
- adding custom data providers,
- adding custom button providers,
- extending core API classes,
- adding custom widget groups,
- adding custom dashboard presets,
- adding TSconfig presets for backend users,
- and some more ...
You can find more information in the official documentation.
The included widgets and data providers don't evaluate any permissions! Therefore most of the widgets shouldn't be activated for editors and only be used by admins.
