Head to grafana.org and download the latest release.

If you have any problems please read the troubleshooting guide.

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 1.7.3
  • NodeJS v4+

Get Code

go get github.com/grafana/grafana

Since imports of dependencies use the absolute path github.com/grafana/grafana within the $GOPATH, 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 directly to $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 (v4+), 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).

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!
