Fancy Gatus is an alternative frontend for the monitoring tool Gatus. The goal is to provide a simplified and modern status page based on data from a Gatus instance, which only displays the most important information in a way that is understandable for end users.
You can see it in action here: https://status.bluemedia.dev
The frontend tries to retrieve a configuration file named
config.json from the webroot during page load. If the configuration is loaded successfully, it will be used to make advanced adjustments to the frontend. The possible options are listed below.
||Title of the page. Both in the tab and next to the logo.||
||Alternative base URL (without trailing slash) of the Gatus instance, if the API is not available relative to the frontend.||
||Array containing names of groups that should be hidden. These groups are still visible in the API response!||
||Array containing names of endpoints that should be hidden. These endpoints are still visible in the API response!||
||Array containing names of groups. The groups are sorted in the frontend according to the order in the array (different from alphabetical sorting by default). If groups are not included in the array, they will be added alphabetically sorted below the sorted groups.||
||Interval in seconds after which the API data is refreshed in the background by default. Can be changed by the user by selecting a value in the lower left corner of the page. Possible values:
||Optional configuration for a notice on the page. It can be used to provide information about a current problem, for example.||
||Type of the notice. This determines the background color of the card. Possible values:
||Title of the notice card.||
||Content text of the notice card.||
||Date and time the notice was created at. For example, use the format
||Date and time the notice was last updated at. For example, use the format
Fancy Gatus is intended to be delivered directly from a web server (e.g. Nginx). The installation is therefore simple.
Just download the latest ZIP file from the release page and unpack it into the web root of your server. If you want to make further adjustments to the frontend, you can also create the configuration file in the web root. Refer to the Configuration section for more information.
Make sure that the Gatus API endpoint
/api/v1/endpoints/statuses is available relative to the frontend if you have not configured a different base URL. An example configuration for Nginx that makes this possible can be found here.
Customizing the logo
If you want to use your own logo, you can simply replace the file in the
img folder. The image should be square, have a minimum size of 250x250 pixels and preferably a transparent background.
You can also easily replace the favicon. You can find various converters for the
ico format online.
Building Fancy Gatus
You can also build the project yourself instead of using one of the pre built releases. To do this, you need the following requirements:
NodeJS >= v14.16.0
Yarn >= v1.22.17
If you have the necessary requirements, you can use
yarn install to install the dependencies and
yarn build to run the build process. The finished data for your web server can be found in the
Fancy Gatus uses Vue.js 3 as its frontend framework. You can therefore use all common Vue.js commands:
Compiles and hot-reloads for development
Compiles and minifies for production
Lints and fixes files
- Use 2 spaces indent and camelCase
- Comment code (in english), if it has a certain complexity
- Stick to the structure
- Test your changes
- Update the documentation
