Amazon QuickSight Embedding SDK

AWS Labs has a lot of open source code up on GitHub. The code in this repo lets your embed Amazon QuickSight dashboards in your HTML.

I’m a big fan of Amazon QuickSight. I think it solves a lot of business problems quickly and easily for customers. The service’s biggest weakness is that no one really knows about it or it’s functionality.

This repo, Amazon QuickSight Embedding SDK, lets you embed QuickSight dashboards in your HTML. I think that goes a long way to help make the insights this service can generate a lot more accessible.

I call out a few more details in the Twitter thread below…

Amazon QuickSight is one of my favourite services. it was also one of the first, if not the first to be hosted at the .aws TLD (fun fact-ish!)

this service is billed as "scalable, serverless, embeddable, ML-powered BI service for the cloud", which is a little to marketing-y for my tastes but is a reasonable description

basically point it at your data and you can click to view/explore your data…

...while it stays (ideally) in your @awscloud S3 buckets. it's a super low effort, low cost analytical engine for your data

ok, back to the project at hand, this one (AGAIN, come on @awscloud) fills in a product gap.

in this case, embedding your QuickSight dashboards in HTML…somewhere

you can embed;

  • dashboards
  • authoring portals
  • the Q search bar (natural language)

that's super powerful, and this project make it easy-ish to do.

as long as you following the steps closely, you’ll get things up and running. it’s a reasonably smooth ux but could be slicker in product (think YouTube’s “embed” option)
