Hi. I’m trying to setup and create my new plugin by following this guide Build a panel plugin | Grafana Labs
- I created folder where I stored the new plugin
- I added the folder path in the [paths] plugins and set the app_mode = development in the .ini file.
- Restarted the Grafana
- I executed the create new plugin (
yarn dev). All of execution was successful and I restarted again the Grafana.
When I checked the Configuration → plugins, the plugin that I created is not in the list.
Can you help me to figure out the problem? Thank you.
Check logs using “journalctl -xe” command, is plugin loaded successfully…
Are you using docker to run grafana?
Keep in mind create-tool on its own won’t load your plugin into grafana, you need to instruct grafana where to load plugins and in the tutorial you linked there’s a docker command:
docker run -d -p 3000:3000 -v "$(pwd)"/grafana-plugins:/var/lib/grafana/plugins --name=grafana grafana/grafana:7.0.0
Notice in this command this part
-v "$(pwd)"/grafana-plugins:/var/lib/grafana/plugins. This part of the command is instructing docker to mount the directory
$(pwd)"/grafana-plugins (where $pwd being the current directory you are in your console) as the grafana plugins directory.
There’s an easier way though, if you bootstrap a plugin with create-plugin there’s a “server” command in the package.json. If you run
yarn server in a console in your new plugin. It’ll start a grafana instance with your plugin loaded on it and ready to use.
