Please give some examples because I'm also really interested in any if
they exist.

I know of Nodewatcher [1], which is actively developed, and soon will
have V3.0 release which will be easily deployable by anybody to create
community mesh network, but currently it is missing lots of UI

I also found out that there is Afrimesh [2], but last commit was in
2011 so it looks like a dead project :( If anybody has used is please
share your experience.

There are quite a few commercial dashboards like Open-Mesh [3] but you
also need to buy their hardware AFAIK...

So if there are other dashboard projects that are usable please share them.
