  • Spotfire® Mods Overview


    Spotfire Mods is a lightweight cloud-enabled framework for adding new interactive visualization types, called visualization mods, to Spotfire. A visualization mod looks, feels and behaves just like a built-in Spotfire visualization and can be reused in different Spotfire analyses with different configurations and data sets, that can be either in-memory, in-database or streaming data from any Spotfire supported data source.

    Introduction

    Spotfire Mods is a lightweight cloud-enabled framework for adding new interactive visualization types, called visualization mods, to Spotfire. A visualization mod looks, feels, and behaves just like a built-in Spotfire visualization and can be reused in different Spotfire analyses with different configurations and data sets, that can be either in-memory, in-database, or streaming data from any Spotfire-supported data source.

    By combining Spotfire Mods with other built-in Spotfire capabilities, such as self-service data access, data wrangling, visual analytics, advanced analytics, embedded BI, and reporting, you can create highly customized analytic applications directly within the Spotfire environment.

    Spotfire Mods greatly expands the types of visualizations accessible to Spotfire Analysts, Authors, and Consumers by enabling customers, partners, and 3rd party developers to easily build and distribute new visualization types to the Spotfire community. This makes analytics available for more business users who get access to a rich set of fit-for-purpose specialized visualizations for different business problems.

    For information about other customization options, see Extending Spotfire®.

    Getting Started with Mods Development

    Visualization mods are quickly developed with web technologies, such as JavaScript and HTML. A simple API gives you access to Spotfire functionality and you can easily integrate any third-party JavaScript visualization library.

    The Getting started guide describes the steps needed to get a mod running in development mode, inside Spotfire.
    The Spotfire Mods GitHub repository contains all assets needed for mod development, such as guides, tutorials, API documentation, templates, and source code examples.

    Trust & Certificates

    A built-in trust mechanism helps you keep your system safe when using Spotfire Mods.

    Governing Mods in Your Organization

    Spotfire Mods allows any Spotfire user to add new visualization types to their Spotfire analyses. How mods are deployed and used in your organization can be centrally governed using licenses, preferences, and server settings.

    Submitting Mods to the Spotfire Community Exchange

    The Spotfire Community Exchange is a safe and trusted place for customers and partners to discover mods for Spotfire, and an opportunity for developers to show off their work and deliver industry-specific and useful mods vetted by Spotfire.
