Grafana Rendering for Raspbian Jessie on Raspberry Pi 3 B in End of Year 2019 - still possible?

I have been trying to setup Grafana and Image Renderer on Raspbian , but I always encountered some incompatibility issues one way or another. Things I have tried are pretty much from :

  1. Grafana 6.3.6 in Docker + Running Image Renderer as standalone Node.js application: the Node.js could run, but I end up getting

Syntax error: word unexpected

from the Node.js output, which is basically this issue:

I did tried different versions of ChromeDriver but I still got the errors.

PS. I grabbed Grafana 6.3.6 because Docker seems to have incompatibility issue for ARM CPU for higher version of Grafana Docker.

  1. Since the point above is filled with “compatibility riddles”, I decided to move on for the Docker Compose route in “Remote rendering service” section of

Since this method is compatible with Docker version of Grafana, let’s go with that. …but the only problem is I couldn’t because “docker-compose” is only supported on 64 bit Linux as specified here: Installing it and trying to run

docker-compose --version

will result in

/usr/local/bin/docker-compose: line 1: Not: command not found

  1. So another thing I tried is to the non-Docker route. I grabbed the native version:


and installing. Everything works fine, so let’s install the grafana image renderer with the grafana-cli:

grafana-cli plugins install grafana-image-renderer

And that yields:

Error: âś— Plugin is not supported on your architecture and os.

So am I out of luck for this?

What am I after is simply to generate PNG images of all panels of all Dashboards in Grafana daily. Is there any other way to do this?
