Indie Hacker Dashboard?


I was looking at Lee Robinson's personal dashboard, and found that it could be useful to visualize my progress.

Everyday morning I will open a bunch of sites to see my stats, including:

  • Medium (for blog views)
  • Google Analystics (for landing page views)
  • Mailchimp (for email signups)

It will be great if they are all in one place.

Do you think it's useful to have such a dashboard?

Are you aware of any product offering for this?

    I knew one company that got into YC with a similar idea. But haven't heard much from the founder.

      Thanks for the tag @volkandkaya!

      Yep - that's exactly the problem I wanted to solve (for myself) with SunriseKPI. Also having it send me those numbers in a daily email each morning :)

        @briancasel 👍I like the idea of having an email in the morning to remind me about the numbers.

    I think the YC company that worked on this was snapboard.io

    You could call this product "Ego Metrics" 🤣

    Personal Dashboards are a really hard business to be in.

    Geckoboard started as personal, morphed to business.

    I have seen quite a few come and go.

    My company provides warehousing, ETL tools, dashboards and visualizations, and sharing tools for businesses. We have seen quite a few companies started, then shut.

      Is it because people generally are not willing to pay for personal dashboards?

        That is one problem. The value of not having to log into different sites is pretty low.

    It’s a good idea, but choose your metrics very carefully...

    Great idea. I am looking for an idea for my first saas. I will take this into consideration.

    Sounds cool! I don't know of any yet but I would love to have one like the one you showed on this post.
