What are the best ways to visualize data in a Rails application?

justin asked in Rails

I am looking for the best way to build a clean, simple, & reactive interface to visualize data in a postgres database. Do you have any recommendations on tutorials/gems that I can follow or look into?

Much appreciated!

Hi Justin

Two things you could look into depending on what more specific you’re looking for.

If you want to get going easy and have something in your own app. I think something like Chartkick could be interesting to look at

If you want a more comprehensive solution. I can recommend Metabase. They recently launched a hosted cloud version. But it’s super easy to host it yourself as well.

Hope you find something that does the trick for you.
