Backend Datasource React Plugin


  1. Is the backend plugin mandatory in order to communicate with the server from which the data is fetched ?
    -or- can any code be executed in the query method in DataSource.ts ?

  2. Must the backend plugin be written in GO ?

  3. Following the example in: - Grafana server fails to init the plugin:


datasource_windows_amd64.exe": file does not exist

The exe file does exist no disk, but I am on Windows so it seems the separating character should be changed. What file is responsible for that ? where should I change ?

  1. You don’t need a backend plugin to write a data source. The data source plugin can communicate directly with your database.

  2. For now, we only support Go

  3. I’m not sure we’re this is defined. I’ll see if I can look it up!
