How to add local data sources?

I’m new to Grafana, and mostly new as a programmer.
I’ve written a program that downloads a JSON file from a server, parses through it and outputs alot of useful information that I now want to display.
So far it’s all being saved locally in text files.
I’m not familiar with any of these supported data sources, so which one can lift data right from my hard drive?

It sounds to me like you should investigate telegraf + InfluxDB for this.

Have you installed Grafana and checked its list of data sources, or have you
at least read https://grafana.com/docs/features/datasources/ ?

Antony.

Both.

I see InfluxDB among the list, but not telegraf.

If you mean to ask have I checked out every single one and what they can do?
No I haven’t, figured it would be mostly Greek to me and I should narrow it down to one or two.
