Documentation & Support

Be sure to read the getting started guide and the other feature guides.

Run from master

If you want to build a package yourself, or contribute. Here is a guide for how to do that. You can always find the latest master builds here


  • Go 1.5
  • NodeJS v4+
  • Godep

Get Code

go get

Since imports of dependencies use the absolute path within the $GOPATH, you will need to put your version of the code in $GOPATH/src/ to be able to develop and build grafana on a cloned repository. To do so, you can clone your forked repository directly to $GOPATH/src/ or you can create a symbolic link from your version of the code to $GOPATH/src/ The last options makes it possible to change easily the grafana repository you want to build.

go get*your_account*/grafana
mkdir $GOPATH/src/
ln -s*your_account*/grafana $GOPATH/src/

Building the backend

cd $GOPATH/src/
go run build.go setup            (only needed once to install godep)
godep restore                    (will pull down all golang lib dependencies in your current GOPATH)
go run build.go build

Building frontend assets

To build less to css for the frontend you will need a recent version of of node (v4+), npm (v2.5.0) and grunt (v0.4.5). Run the following:

npm install
npm run build

To build the frontend assets only on changes:

sudo npm install -g grunt-cli # to do only once to install grunt command line interface
grunt watch

Recompile backend on source change

To rebuild on source change (requires that you executed godep restore)

go get
bra run



Open grafana in your browser (default http://localhost:3000) and login with admin user (default user/pass = admin/admin).

Dev config

Create a custom.ini in the conf directory to override default configuration options. You only need to add the options you want to override. Config files are applied in the order of:

  1. grafana.ini
  2. dev.ini (if found)
  3. custom.ini

Create a pull request

Before or after you create a pull request, sign the contributor license agreement.


If you have any idea for an improvement or found a bug do not hesitate to open an issue. And if you have time clone this repo and submit a pull request and help me make Grafana the kickass metrics & devops dashboard we all dream about!

Before creating a pull request be sure that “grunt test” runs without any style or unit test errors, also please sign the CLA


Grafana is distributed under Apache 2.0 License. Work in progress Grafana 2.0 (with included Grafana backend)
