Want to centralise all your critical metrics on one beautiful dashboard? Ghost and Geckoboard have got you covered
Years ago when Ghost was just a seed of an idea, we imagined building a dashboard of site data so that publishers could view all of their statistics inside Ghost Admin. That turned out to be a very complex feature to build, though, and in the mean time our friends over at Geckoboard built an entire company to comprehensively solve the problem.
Making your own dashboard
Creating a custom publisher dashboard with Geckoboard is easy and can be done entirely in the browser. Geckoboard natively connects to all the major social networks, email, and analytics services like Twitter, Facebook and Google Analytics and Mailchimp.
Ghost RSS feeds are fully compatible with Geckoboard so you can get a feed of your most recent posts and key data. Remember: You can add
/rss/ to most Ghost URLs to get a corresponding RSS feed of the currently listed posts.
If you want to power up your dashboard even further, it’s also possible to add automation by using Zapier. Here are a few ideas of different ways to Geckoboard to monitor your Ghost site:
