Download and host it internally (just like Wordpress, drupal or any other PHP based web application)
InfoCaptor is a very intuitive HTML5 based browser application. You can use it on your own desktop/laptop or host it on your own web hosting/intranet/behind your own firewall.
The interface is drag and drop widgets. Stretch any widget to any size and re-position them any where you want it.
All widgets behave the same way and are completely "data-aware"
What is "data-aware": Every widget can accept manually punched data (that you directly type into it) or can be sourced from any external source. The external source could be a database or third party web service. Each and every widget from icons to lines and arrows is data-aware and has the ability to use the data-connectors and show information.
Drag any widget from the left panel to the right canvas
Double click to add dummy data (prototype values)
Or just right click and select "Data Source"
Select the service or database connection
Fill up the needed information
Visualization and Data separation
All the widgets you see on the left panel are visualization objects and they do not affect the "Data Source" and similarly each "Data Source" is independent of the visualization. With this approach InfoCaptor provides you with the ultimate freedom of visualizing your own data in any form and size.
