Creating Toggle button Plugin

I would like to use Grafana as a control panel, for which I need toggle button for controlling my devices. But I don’t have idea of creating one such plugin. I have seen the guide for developing plugins on Grafana, but I don’t understand which files need to be edited for creating toggle button. Could you please provide a guide on using grafana as a control panel.


Check out the grafana-toolkit to get started writing a panel plugin. Once you get something up and running, you can find some inspiration in some of the existing panel plugins:

Thank you for your reply.
I’m having mysql table that stores the values of sensor (either 0 or 1). I have created toggle switch and trying to change its state based on stored values in the table, but could not achieve it. I could not understand how to make switch to interact and change its state depending on table values. I tried using events ‘onDataReceived’, but could not get the result. Could you guide how to achieve this.

NOTE: I’m using Clock Panel as a start.

Thanks, in advance.

Dear Muthineni,

others including ourselves might be aiming at similar goals, see also:

However, we haven’t been able to get our hands dirty on it so far.

With kind regards,

I tried as well, by combining the “Stats panel”(to view the current state) and the “Cloudprout button plugin” (to launch http request), but the button plugin was too buggy to achieve anything.
