Universal Dashboard 2.6

Today, I’m pleased to announce the release of PowerShell Universal Dashboard 2.6! PowerShell Universal Dashboard is the web framework for PowerShell. Below are a few of the highlighted features. For a full list of issues resolved, please visit our documentation.

We had 10 people contribute to this release. HUGE shout out to all the PR pushers!

Beautiful Default Theme

The default theme was a mismatch of styles that made it look a little weird. All Universal Dashboards out of the box would look kinda bad with some work on the user’s end. We’ve taken some steps to improve the look of the default theme.

We’ve added padding around the outside of the dashboard. Previously, controls would butt right up against the side of the browser window. There were a lot of colors all over the place in Universal Dashboard before. Now we’ve selected a few basic colors, set the background color to off white and tried to ensure those colors are used throughout the dashboard.

Check out how much better your existing dashboard looks with the new color scheme! If you’d like to see another theme get some love, please open an issue on GitHub.

WS-Federation Support

Universal Dashboard now supports authenticating against WS-Federation systems. This means you can use Active Directory Federation Services and Azure Active Directory over WS-Fed. Check out the full documentation on how to configure this type of authentication method.

Dark Rounded Theme

A new, dark rounded theme has been added to give a different spin on the Material Design look and feel of Universal Dashboard.

Tooltip Support

You can now define tooltips for components. Any component can be wrapped in a tooltip so that when it’s hovered, it shows the tooltip. Tool tips have various styling and placement options.
