Extending Grafana with Plugins: Step-by-Step Guide

To expand Grafana with plugins, follow these steps:

1. Create a New Plugin Project:

  • Use Grafana CLI tool (npm install -g @grafana/toolkit).
  • Run grafana-cli plugins create <plugin-name> to generate a new project.

2. Develop the Plugin:

  • Modify files based on your requirements inside the generated project folder.
  • Refer to Grafana documentation for plugin types and APIs.

3. Build the Plugin:

  • Finish development, install dependencies (yarn install or npm install).
  • Build the plugin with yarn build or npm run build.

4. Add the Plugin to Grafana:

  • Copy the plugin directory to Grafana (dist or build folder) inside plugins directory.

5. Restart Grafana:

  • Restart the Grafana server for changes to take effect; the server will detect and load the new plugin.

6. Configure and Use the Plugin:

  • In Grafana, navigate to Configuration > Plugins.
  • Find the newly added plugin, configure, and enable it.
  • Utilize the plugin's features (visualization types, data sources, panels) in your Grafana instance.

Remember to consult the plugin documentation for specific development details and requirements based on the plugin's type and purpose.
