How do I create and run a custom panel plugin without using docker?

Hi, I was able to create a panel plugin using docker from the tutorial given. I wanted to know how to do it without docker.

Hi @tanmayudupa just to be on the same page, it is important to notice that docker is merely a tool to run containers and that we recommend to use it to run Grafana while you develop your plugin. Docker is not a requirement for Grafana or Grafana plugin development

That said, once you are satisfied with your plugin you’ll want to:

It is all easier if you use a pipeline such a Github action

Alternatively, once you have packaged your plugin you can manually install it in another grafana instance (running in docker or somewhere else). You can’t install unpublished plugins in Grafana cloud instances.
