Grafonnet, a Jsonnet library for generating Grafana dashboards

CircleCI

Grafonnet provides a simple way of writing Grafana dashboards. It leverages the data templating language Jsonnet. It enables you to write reusable components that you can use and reuse for multiple dashboards.

Getting started

Prerequisites

Grafonnet requires Jsonnet.

Linux

You must build the binary. For details, see the GitHub repository.

Mac OS X

Jsonnet is available in Homebrew. If you do not have Homebrew installed, install it.

Then run:

brew install jsonnet

Install grafonnet

Clone this git repository:

git clone git@github.com:grafana/grafonnet-lib.git

Then import the grafonnet in your jsonnet code:

local grafana = import 'grafonnet/grafana.libsonnet';

To be able to find the grafonnet library, you must pass the root of the git repository to grafonnet using the -J option:

jsonnet -J <path> dashboard.jsonnet

As you build your own mixins/dashboards, you should add additional -J paths.

Examples

Simple Grafana 5.x dashboard:

Please note that the layout has changed, no row objects and new possible nesting of panel objects. You need to set schemaVersion parameter on dashboard object to at least 16.

local grafana = import 'grafonnet/grafana.libsonnet';
local dashboard = grafana.dashboard;
local row = grafana.row;
local singlestat = grafana.singlestat;
local prometheus = grafana.prometheus;
local template = grafana.template;

dashboard.new(
  'JVM',
  schemaVersion=16,
  tags=['java'],
)
.addTemplate(
  grafana.template.datasource(
    'PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'prometheus',
    'Prometheus',
    hide='label',
  )
)
.addTemplate(
  template.new(
    'env',
    '$PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'label_values(jvm_threads_current, env)',
    label='Environment',
    refresh='time',
  )
)
.addTemplate(
  template.new(
    'job',
    '$PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'label_values(jvm_threads_current{env="$env"}, job)',
    label='Job',
    refresh='time',
  )
)
.addTemplate(
  template.new(
    'instance',
    '$PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'label_values(jvm_threads_current{env="$env",job="$job"}, instance)',
    label='Instance',
    refresh='time',
  )
)
.addPanel(
  singlestat.new(
    'uptime',
    format='s',
    datasource='Prometheus',
    span=2,
    valueName='current',
  )
  .addTarget(
    prometheus.target(
      'time() - process_start_time_seconds{env="$env", job="$job", instance="$instance"}',
    )
  ), gridPos={
    x: 0,
    y: 0,
    w: 24,
    h: 3,
  }
)

Simple Grafana 4.x dashboard:

local grafana = import 'grafonnet/grafana.libsonnet';
local dashboard = grafana.dashboard;
local row = grafana.row;
local singlestat = grafana.singlestat;
local prometheus = grafana.prometheus;
local template = grafana.template;

dashboard.new(
  'JVM',
  tags=['java'],
)
.addTemplate(
  grafana.template.datasource(
    'PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'prometheus',
    'Prometheus',
    hide='label',
  )
)
.addTemplate(
  template.new(
    'env',
    '$PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'label_values(jvm_threads_current, env)',
    label='Environment',
    refresh='time',
  )
)
.addTemplate(
  template.new(
    'job',
    '$PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'label_values(jvm_threads_current{env="$env"}, job)',
    label='Job',
    refresh='time',
  )
)
.addTemplate(
  template.new(
    'instance',
    '$PROMETHEUS_DS',
    'label_values(jvm_threads_current{env="$env",job="$job"}, instance)',
    label='Instance',
    refresh='time',
  )
)
.addRow(
  row.new()
  .addPanel(
    singlestat.new(
      'uptime',
      format='s',
      datasource='Prometheus',
      span=2,
      valueName='current',
    )
    .addTarget(
      prometheus.target(
        'time() - process_start_time_seconds{env="$env", job="$job", instance="$instance"}',
      )
    )
  )
)
