I want to build a dashboard to report on KPI’s of cloud infrastructure (servers, stats, disk space, key events, etc). My tools would be HTML and css. I use bash or PS to pull those stats from servers (Think of disk space for example or directory changes after comparing two directories). Can I build it just with those two languages (HTML/CSS) or do I need another language like python to update stats from various text files (scripts pull data from servers every hour) to present or update the dashboard?
I don’t really want to use existing frameworks like Grafana, etc. Would prefer to create from scratch so I can better customize to what I want to show/present. Would appreciate your insight on this. Seems like overall searches for simplifying a decent looking dashboard requires more then 4 languages. Not sure why this is so difficult.
