Create a new plugin

Quick overview

Run the command in the folder where you want to store your plugins. The new plugin will be scaffolded in a sub-directory of the folder where you run the command.

Create Plugin can be used with NPM, PNPM or Yarn 1. The plugin will be scaffolded to use your preferred package manager. Run the command with the package manager of your choice:

npx @grafana/create-plugin@latest
npm init @grafana/plugin
pnpm dlx @grafana/create-plugin@latest

yarn (1.x)

yarn create @grafana/plugin

Migrate your existing plugin

⚠️ We do not support plugins written in angular

In case you have an existing plugin previously created using the @grafana/toolkit you can use the following command to migrate it to the new build tooling:

# Run this command from the root of your plugin
cd ./my-plugin

npx @grafana/create-plugin@latest migrate

For more information see here

Update your plugin build config

In case your plugin was using @grafana/toolkit before make sure to migrate it first using npx @grafana/create-plugin migrate.

As new Grafana versions come out we keep updating our plugin build tooling as well to stay compatible and to make it more performant. In order to receive these changes and to make sure your plugin is compatible with the most recent Grafana versions you can use the update command, that automatically updates the build configuration for you:

# Run this command from the root of your plugin
cd ./my-plugin

npx @grafana/create-plugin@latest update

For more information see here

Customizing or extending the basic configs

You can read more about customizing or extending the basic configuration in our documentation.

Add provisioning to your existing plugin

You can streamline the plugin review process by incorporating provisioning into your existing plugin, enabling reviewers to test your plugin more efficiently.

# Run this command from the root of your plugin
cd ./my-plugin

npx @grafana/create-plugin@latest provisioning

For more information see our documentation.


We are always grateful for contributions! See CONTRIBUTING.md for more information.
