Minimum requirements for running a dashboard

Tip

We recommend the ASUS Chromebit because of its price, size, and that it runs Chrome. Since it’s a Chrome OS device, it’s also compatible with our Chrome app for Chrome OS.

Geckoboard runs on a wide range of devices and platforms, however occasionally we come across some setups that aren't suitable for displaying a dashboard at its best. If you're unsure whether Geckoboard will run on a particular device, we recommend the following as a minimum requirement.

Browser: Chrome, Firefox or Safari (updated to latest version to fully support HTML5 and JavaScript). IE (all versions) and stock Android browsers are not supported.

System: 512MB of memory recommended as a minimum. 

Other important details:

  • Supports full screen mode
  • Has an HDMI output or proper cable for your screen
  • Allows for easy text input (for navigating to your dashboard)
  • Capable of connecting to a wireless network

Note

If your device doesn't meet the minimum requirements, please make sure Geckoboard Lite is enabled.

Warning

If you’re using a Smart TV, we still recommend using an external device to run Geckoboard. Smart TV web browsers are typically underpowered and not up-to-date, so we can't guarantee things will run smoothly.

If you still choose to use a Smart TV, we recommend making sure that Geckoboard Lite is enabled.
