Apache Superset (incubating)¶
Apache Superset (incubating) is a modern, enterprise-ready business intelligence web application
Disclaimer: Apache Superset is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

A rich set of data visualizations
An easy-to-use interface for exploring and visualizing data
Create and share dashboards
Enterprise-ready authentication with integration with major authentication providers (database, OpenID, LDAP, OAuth & REMOTE_USER through Flask AppBuilder)
An extensible, high-granularity security/permission model allowing intricate rules on who can access individual features and the dataset
A simple semantic layer, allowing users to control how data sources are displayed in the UI by defining which fields should show up in which drop-down and which aggregation and function metrics are made available to the user
Integration with most SQL-speaking RDBMS through SQLAlchemy
Deep integration with Druid.io
The following RDBMS are currently supported:
Other database engines with a proper DB-API driver and SQLAlchemy dialect should be supported as well.
