Visualizing Data Using Fabrik

Fabrik is a rapid application building extension for Joomla, and it's super easy to show your data in lists or details views. But did you know you can show that same data in different ways, more visual ways? Fabrik Visualizations allow you to show data in many different customizable ways, such as Google Maps, Full Calendars, or Fusion Charts. In this video presentation for the JoomlaShack 2019 Online Conference, I take a look at using each one of these to create a cool dashboard in Joomla.

Continue reading to watch the video.

If you want to follow along, you will need to pause at certain points to install Fabrik if you don't have it already or upload some library files for the Fusion Charts to function. You also will need some data in your app to be able to test out your visuals, you can either use existing data, or if you need test data, use a generator site such as: Mockaroo or Online Data Generator

I hope this video presentation will help you get started doing cool visualizations in your Joomla sites using Fabrik!
