Hi I want to make custom data source similar to the MYSQL datasource so I decided making a copy of the MYSQL plugin and calling it testplugin would be a good place to start. I changed the name and id both to testplugin in the plugin.json and testplugin appeared in the dropdown for data sources. However if I select it, it says module.ts not found.
However the module.ts file is there where it should be, except grafana isn’t recognizing it.
This led me to believe that grafana might be ignoring all the scripts in the plugins folders after it has been installed. Is this true? If so how do I go about testing custom datasource plugins? Do I need to rebuild grafana everytime I edit a plugin? How would I do that? Help would be appreciated as I am new to grafana plugin dev
Thanks in advance!
