Can ad hoc apps be built in a custom kibana visualization?

We need to build a custom UI on top of Elastic and we're wondering if there is a way to do this with our own custom visualizations somehow. The challenge is that we need to do the types of things that many apps need, like have search text fields, buttons, tabular text display, next / previous page buttons, sortable columns, etc. Is this possible within the Kibana framework somehow or are we forced to fire up a web server and traditional tooling and build it from scratch? We also liked the idea of our app being integrated into kibana's UI and authentication environment.

Hey @David9, all of our applications in Kibana are written using "plugins", so it's definitely possible to do what you're looking for. is a great place to get started.
