Has anyone modified Kibana code to display images or documents?

I'm looking if it would be possible to display a document or image on the Kibana dashboard, or at least have a link to a directory where they are stored.

You could display an image on a dashboard using the Markdown visualization, and make the image tag in Markdown like:

![alt text](http://example.com/path/to/image.jpg)

You can also drop an images in the src/ui/public/images folder to have the image hosted by the Kibana web server. If you do this, you will need to run the Kibana optimizer to be able to access the image from a browser. You can do this by installing some plugin, for example Sense:

./bin/kibana plugin --install elastic/sense

After you restart Kibana, you should be able to find the image at: http://your-domain:5601/bundles/src/ui/public/images/your-image.png

Thanks. I'll try the markdown suggestion. I would need to be able to display it without having access to the internet if possible.
