We're deprecating Angular-based plugins

For the past few years, the Grafana team has been working on migrating the code base from AngularJS to React. We introduced our new React-based plugin platform in Grafana 7, which gives you access to use new exciting features and performance improvements.

During the process of migrating to React, we’ve kept backwards-compatibility with plugins written in AngularJS. As part of finalizing the migration work, we’ve decided to start the process of deprecating the support for Angular plugins.

Many of these plugins are still loved and used by the Grafana community, and we’ll be supporting the plugin authors in migrating their plugins to React.

We’ll deprecate Angular plugins in two steps:

  • Grafana 9 (June 2022) will disable Angular plugins by default. If you still depend on Angular-based plugin, you’ll need to update your Grafana configuration.
  • Grafana 10 (Summer 2023) will remove Angular support completely. Angular-based plugins will no longer work.

For more information, refer to Angular support deprecation in the official docs.
