Re:dash offers a simplified means of visualizing and collaborating on the massive amounts of data generated by today’s tech projects. With this application you can quickly access billions of records in the most popular databases, and then share both the resulting data and the query that created it to make visualizations and dashboards. Whether you are approaching data that is relational, object-oriented, or a combination of the two; Re:dash provides a hackerish way to make sense of it all and share it with others.
Why use the Bitnami Re:dash Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run Re:dash in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Re:dash Stack is:
We track every release of Re:dash and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Re:dash as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Re:dash or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Re:dash Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

I made 2 videos (a webinar and a conference talk) showing how easy is to install re:dash with bitnami, and then creating interesting visualizations with BigQuery:
I installed the vm part of the re:dash, as a first time user. Did not have any trouble at all to get to the re:dash web portion. The vm was clean and the process was quite simple. Thanks to Bitnami, it saved a lot of time in keeping things simple.
Next I basically wanted to try out connecting re:dash with mongodb outside the vm instance, and also use the manage.py for user administration. This is where the libraries were missing inside the vm. But fortunately there is enough documentation available to complete this task.
1. To Connect to mongodb outside the vm , i had to install pymongo.
2. To use the manage.py for re:dash, had to install all the requirements using pip from the requirements.txt also available inside the htdocs of redash.
Once these were done, everything went on well and the whole interface was quite simple. Was able to extract data from mongodb and create some queries and added to dashboard.
Thanks to both bitnami and re:dash. Keep up the good work.
