Tractor Dashboard is the main user interface to Tractor. It is a web application that runs in a standard web browser. The code for the Dashboard is loaded when you connect your browser to tractor-engine which behaves like a regular web server.

There are two broad types of Dashboard configuration. There are the per-user dashboard preferences which are set via the Preferences tab in the Dashboard itself; the values are stored in a per-user area on the tractor-engine host. There are also helper app configurations that typically require changes to both the web browser itself (or in some cases the operating system application registry) on each user's machine, as well as handler settings within Tractor's auxiliary configuration files.
