I have been following this thread for sometime : https://github.com/grafana/grafana/issues/6841
Seems most of the changes to support backend are merged in : https://github.com/grafana/grafana/commit/3951df136c65ed70f06b7a4d9213636c53eb1feb
I was wondering if there are directions to use this to move plugin to backend.
Looked at https://github.com/grafana/simple-json-datasource/tree/backend-updated but seems substantial changes including rewrite of datasource.ts to datasource.go
We are using druid and would love to move it to the backend so that alerting is possible.
