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 1.8.1
- NodeJS LTS
go get github.com/grafana/grafana
Since imports of dependencies use the absolute path
github.com/grafana/grafana within the
you will need to put your version of the code in
$GOPATH/src/github.com/grafana/grafana to be able
to develop and build grafana on a cloned repository. To do so, you can clone your forked repository
$GOPATH/src/github.com/grafana or you can create a symbolic link from your version
of the code to
$GOPATH/src/github.com/grafana/grafana. The last options makes it possible to change
easily the grafana repository you want to build.
go get github.com/*your_account*/grafana mkdir $GOPATH/src/github.com/grafana ln -s $GOPATH/src/github.com/*your_account*/grafana $GOPATH/src/github.com/grafana/grafana
Building the backend
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/grafana/grafana go run build.go setup go run build.go build
Building frontend assets
To build less to css for the frontend you will need a recent version of node (v6+), npm (v2.5.0) and grunt (v0.4.5). Run the following:
npm install -g yarn yarn install --pure-lockfile 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.
go get github.com/Unknwon/bra bra run
Open grafana in your browser (default:
http://localhost:3000) and login with admin user (default:
user/pass = admin/admin).
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:
