TargetProcess impediment widget

Author: Julian Kleinhans ยท Blog:

Dashing-JS is a NodeJS port of Dashing, an Sinatra based framework that lets you build beautiful dashboards.

The TargetProcess impediment widget is a small widget which provides the total amount of impediments of a specific sprint (acid). Below this amount a profile image of the responsible persons are shown.


Zero Impediments Impediments

Example Dashboard




$ npm install -g dashing-js

Widget dependencies

$ npm install tp-api
$ npm install cron


$ dashing-js install

Create a new directory config on your root directory. Move the widgets/targetprocess_impediments/config.targetprocess_impediments.sample.js file to this directory and rename it to config.targetprocess_impediments.js.



To include the widget on your dashboard, add the following snippet to the dashboard layout file:

<li data-row="1" data-col="1" data-sizex="1" data-sizey="1">
  <div data-title="Impediments" data-id="targetprocess_impediments" data-view="TargetprocessImpediments"></div>
  <i class="fa fa-clock-o icon-background"></i>

Or if you use Jade as your favorite template engine

li(data-row='1', data-col='1', data-sizex='1', data-sizey='1')
  div(data-title='Impediments', data-id='targetprocess_impediments', data-view='TargetprocessImpediments', class='widget')
  i(class='fa fa-exclamation-triangle icon-background')


module.exports = {

    eventName: 'targetprocess_impediments',
    cronInterval: '15 * * * * *',

    api: {
        host: '',
        context: '2439DD66D093095E290CF98FB987D4B7',
        version: '1',
        protocol: 'https',
        token: 'bcdefabcdefabcdefgbcdefabcdefabcdefg'
        // or instead of an API token
        // username: '',
        // password: '',

    profileImageMapping: {
        // targetprocess user id : Profile image URL
        '85861': '',
