React.js & Redux, Pretty Charts, Better Dashboards

Need we say more?  If you’ve used Sematext Cloud recently you’ve noticed the UI looks and behaves differently.  Indeed, we rewrote the whoooooole front-end using modern front-end technologies like React.js and Redux (watch this statement become outdated in 12 months!).  

We’ve switched to Chart.JS for charts, and contributed a few PRs to it along the way.  We’ve made it possible to show/hide chart legends, change their positioning, to easily add/remove individual timeseries from metrics charts, and so on.  Dashboards have been completely rewritten and are much, much faster and lighter than before.  You can easily create a Dashboard that contains charts from multiple different Metrics or Logs apps.  You can also add logs themselves to a Dashboard, or event charts, or components with custom Markdown in them.

There is a lot more to our UI changes, some of which we’ve highlighted in Navigation, Discoverability, and Accessibility, but the best way to experience the goodness is by using Sematext Cloud yourself.
