A simple webapp for presenting data as offered by SaltStack's Redis Returner

Project Description
# Salt Observer

This is a simple webapp for presenting data as offered by [Salt's Redis
written in [Flask]( A static demo is available

![Screenshot of Saltobserver (17-12-2014)](

### Features
- a simple and responsive interface
- three main views:
- a function view showing all minions that ran a particular function (as
shown on the screenshot)
- a history view for looking at a minion's history with a specific function
- a job view listing all minions which ran a specific job
- a customizable navbar, which links to function views
- searchpages for everything
- live updates for the function view using websockets and [Redis' Keyspace
- a collapsible representation of raw job data using the awesome

### Running it
If your minions return their data to some Redis instance, it is as simple as
running `./` (and putting that behind a reverse proxy, if needed). This
uses [Gunicorn](, which is pretty flexible and can be
configured for pretty much any setup.

Note that your Redis instance has to have a version greater than v2.8.0 for the
live updates to work.

Also look at the configuration in `saltobserver/`.
