Dashboard is a visual indicator of an objective or a business process. It is an invaluable tool for cutting through data clutter and getting down to the essentials. It helps you to evaluate information and allow to make the correct decision in a timely manner. Live visual dashboards consist of charts, maps, graphic symbols, data tables, etc.

There are several open source or commercial libraries for creating dashboards. In this article, I will show you some of the JavaScript libraries that will help you create beautiful and customizable dashboards for your projects.
