OK… I feel like I’m drinking from a funnel and a bit overwhelmed as I try and solve this one. Hoping its easier than I’m making it.
I have a simple dashboard that is two columns and 4 rows. I do not need to dynamically create new dashboards or change any properties (other than widgets) based on user. I do however want to save the widgets selected by the user so they are there the next time that user logs in.
My thought is to save the dashboard components prop.widgets object and associate that with the current user. Maybe in a DB? I am just getting started and I’m very rusty when it comes to scripting in Python and the last time I used SQL was 15 yrs ago. I’m looking for thoughts on how others would do it. I know the app that comes as an example app in Maker has some, if not all, of this in there but it is way more than I can comprehend. I need to dumb it down.
- Can I write a script that fires on Change for the widgets property? Essentially the script would capture the widgets object, grab the user ID, and then write that to a DB (in my case postgres).
- Can I then have a script that fires on login of a user that will query the DB for the user ID and then write the widget object saved to the sessions dashboard?
- Is there a simpler way than described above?
Any help is appreciated.
