Data sources

Currently, Chartbrew supports connections to these data sources.

  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • MongoDB
  • Firestore
  • Google Analytics

Chartbrew also features dashboard templates with charts already prepared:

  • Simple Analytics
  • ChartMogul
  • Mailgun
  • Google Analytics

...or you can create your custom templates and replicate them across multiple dashboards.


  • NodeJS v12 (should also work with v10)
    • For M1 Macs you might need the latest v14 or v15
  • NPM
  • MySQL (5+) or PostgreSQL (12.5+)
