I am working on a plugin that will add a menu entry on the left menu and will display a page with custom functionalities. Can anyone share how to achieve this, and if you have any example templates and code, to share it?
I didn’t find any custom plugin examples related to the rendering of a new page and menu item.
Thanks in advance!
@Todor Take a look at the blog post I wrote about plugins and how to build them: Introduction to OpenSearch Dashboard Plugins · OpenSearch
You will have to do 2 things to get what you want:
- Create a new plugin to add the functionality that you want. i.e. the new page
- Register your plugin with the core application to let it know how to render your app. OpenSearch-Dashboards/plugin.ts at 2.6 · opensearch-project/OpenSearch-Dashboards · GitHub
Also look at the example plugins found in the repo for more insights on how to write a plugin. They are minimal examples that can get help you understand a lot of the fundamentals easily.
@ashwinpc Thank you! How can I then add these plugins to my docker project? I managed to run them only on the OpenSearchDashboards repo?
Thats actually a good question. Considering that there are a few ways you can setup the application to use docker, can you tell me a little more about your docker setup? how exactly are you running the project using docker?
Yes. I am using a docker compose file, and I want to set up the yarn watcher with it, but it seems that with docker it runs in production mode, without the -dev in the yarn command. Could you give me a hint on how to run the image in development mode? I have created a volume for my custom plugin in the docker compose file, but nothing happens when I modify the plugin files.
