Is there a way to display Gitlab statistics to common dashboard software (e.g. Geckoboard)?

I already asked on stackoverflow here: integration - Is there a way to display Gitlab statistics to common dashboard software (e.g. Geckoboard)? - Stack Overflow. But not yet received any answers so I’m trying here:

I want to display some statistics from gitlab to a dashboard:

  • How many issues are open
  • CI status
  • Open Issues by User “Support”
  • etc.

As I see there is no major dashboard platform with native integration. Or is there?
Grafana seems to be the only option but I’ve not found any ressources about how to do what I want to do.

Any ideas?
