Easy way to create Jira gadgets

No need to create a new gadget when you want to show a table or a chart based on data retrieved from Jira REST API or any external web service. Universal gadget provides a base to add your JavaScript and HTML/CSS.

Fetch and visualize data from external services

Weather gadget. We just copied a sample script and adjusted one line in JavaScript.

Can be used to see weather for your distributed team.

User timesheet sample script

Sample script that retrieves worklog data through Jira REST API and draws timesheet table. The worklog entries can be filtered based on start date, end date, jql and users parameters.

More details

After developing few customized Jira gadgets that were based on data retrieved by JavaScript from Jira REST API and external services, we asked ourselves: "why should we develop and package new gadget every time". Since JavaScript is dynamically interpreted, we can have some basic Jira gadget plugin and give ability to add custom JavaScript code. The custom code will be loaded into the gadget iframe and executed there.

So whenever we need to show a table or a chart with some data that are retrieved through Jira REST API, we just write a JavaScript code that fetches and displays the data. No need to create and package new gadget every time.
