One Off Chart mode


My team is currently trying to create a One Off Charting mode within Grafana. At first we thought we could make a new plugin which only contained a single panel object. However, it quickly became apparent that the a Panel is instantiated within a Row which is within a Dashboard, bringing us back to square one.

The alternative we are looking at is Scripted Dashboard but that didn’t allow us the option to have a chart type agnostic panel, or allow us to add the created one-off chart to an existing dashboard.

I did also notice there was a pull request on GitHub but doesn’t look like it got merged into the project. We were wondering weather there were any suggestions on how else this could be accomplished?

It would require some changes to a panel so it can live outside a dashboard. Some substantial changes.
