The Dashiki extension simply renders the JSON used to configure dashiki dashboards in a friendly html table. In the future, the Dashiki extension might be updated with better editors and schema validation, but for now it's simply here to render and provide a little context to Dashiki configurations on meta.wikimedia.org.
- Dashiki renders Config:Dashiki: pages in a nice format with contextual help.
