What are some of the best practices on custom visualization for dashboards?

Communicator

Good day all Splunkers, I was wondering how everyone are creating custom dashboards and widgets for splunk? Like i have all the usercases written down pulling good data out and all the management are happy with it. But they want some custom visualization so that they can showcase the work. I have very limited knowledge in CSS and Java and i was wondering how others are doing this. Is there any third party company with reputation in this field or is there perhaps a tool which beginners can use to tackle this? Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

@ranjitbrhm1, Custom Visualization API (introduced in 6.4 and modified in 6.5) will allow you to create your own Custom Visualization. It has documentation on Document and Design guidelines as well. Building custom visualization requires Web Developer Skills so you have to pick up on JavaScript, CSS and visualization JS Stacks like d3, highcharts or any other of your preference. Knowledge of svg or canvas would be helpful as well.

If possible please let us know your Customer Requirement and the kind of data/stats you have so that we could suggest you from some of the visualizations already out there so that you would not need to spend time on building one. You can explore Custom Visualizations on Splunkbase: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/apps/#/search/Custom%20Visualization/
