Moving forward, UD will be running under the PowerShell Universal platform. There won’t be a Universal Dashboard vs UD Community. More info on that here: https://ironmansoftware.com/ud-ua-powershell-universal/
The UD Community features are being rolled into PSU so you’ll still be able to run your dashboards for free. There are even more components being released to the public repo (Nivo and Map so far).
The UD repo contains just the UD frameworks and components. The PSU platform is downloaded during the tests and then the frameworks are added to the PSU instance.
Here is how PSU is downloaded: https://github.com/ironmansoftware/universal-dashboard/blob/master/src/build.ps1#L16
This folder is the v2.9 framework. It contains both the client folder as well as materialize: https://github.com/ironmansoftware/universal-dashboard/tree/master/src/v2
This folder is the v3.0 framework. It contains both the client folder as well as Material UI: https://github.com/ironmansoftware/universal-dashboard/tree/master/src/v3
You can build the project and run the tests like this: https://github.com/ironmansoftware/universal-dashboard#building
Here’s an example of how to add the built framework to PSU and then spin up a dashboard. https://github.com/ironmansoftware/universal-dashboard/blob/master/src/v2/tests.build.ps1#L31
You can also add frameworks via the UI on the Frameworks tab.
There are still some thing missing from PSU but we are actively working to get parity with UD. PSU will provide a much better foundation for the future. It’s an exciting time for UD.
I’ll be working on some official docs for all of this.
