template portal to display data for a specific entity which is passed as a parameter. A portal can also be
regular, in which case the entity is defined in the configuration text by the user. These instructions detail the creation of a regular portal for the entity
Expand Portals from the top menu and click Create

[configuration] height-units = 2 width-units = 2 timespan = 24 hour update-interval = 5 second [group] widgets-per-row = 2 [widget] type = chart [series] entity = br-1905 metric = temperature [widget] type = gauge mode = half thresholds = 0, 20, 40, 60, 100 [series] entity = br-1905 metric = temperature
To view the portal, click View By Name.
The resulting portal is shown below:
Add a third time chart which contains a calculated series by appending the following text to widget configuration in the Content window:
[widget] type = chart mode = stack [series] entity = br-1905 metric = temperature color = orange # multiply values by 2 replace-value = value * 2
Reload the portal to view the new chart.
bash loop to observe new data points as they appear in the portal.
The Charts library provides settings and functions to add meta data to charts and thus eliminate manual tagging and labeling.
Add the following settings at the
[configuration] level to automatically embed entity and metric metadata into series legend.
legend-position = top add-meta = true label-format = meta.entity.label: meta.metric.label (meta.metric.units)
