Development and production versions


Development is done in the develop (default GitHub) branch.

Commits to the develop branch are automatically compiled, tested, and merged to the master branch.

Releases will be tagged from the master branch and submitted to the Grafana plugin repository.

Setting Up Helm and Grafana for Development

  1. Install Node.js and Grafana for your platform.

  2. Configure Grafana to allow unsigned plugin development by editing grafana.ini:

    app_mode = development
    # further down in the file:
    allow_loading_unsigned_plugins = opennms-helm-app
  3. Check out the Helm git repository:

    git clone
    cd opennms-helm
  4. Build Helm and symlink the dist directory in your Helm source tree into the Grafana plugin path (you will need to change these paths to match your system).

    # install Helm's build and runtime dependencies
    npm ci
    # do a one-time build to prime the dist/ directory
    npm run dev
    # symlink the dist/ directory into Grafana's plugin dir
    ln -s /path/to/opennms-helm/dist /var/lib/grafana/plugins/opennms-helm-app
    # run a continuous build that watches for changes
    # after you save a change to Helm, just refresh Grafana to get the updates
    npm run watch
