Kibana 7.6.0: UI Registry - Cannot Resolve VisTypes - Visualization Factory

I am trying to update a plugin (kbn sankey vis) so that it works with Kibana 7.6
https://github.com/uniberg/kbn_sankey_vis in order to try to create a sankey diagram in vega.

I am having the same issue as in Can't resolve `ui/registry/vis_types` [7.5], but unable to resolve the issue.

Is it possible to amend the instructions on https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/development-visualization-factory.html to reflect how visualisation factory should be correctly implemented?

Thanks

There is a change that has been done in Kibana 7.5 where the whole plugin part has been changed. https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/7.6/development-visualize-index.html
What I'd suggest is joining the community Slack, where you can get help from the devs directly: https://ela.st/slack.
In the meantime, if you need to use a Sankey vis, I'd recommend Vega as there are a bunch already created that work just fine:

Hi Marius,

Thank you for your reply. I was playing with the Sankey vega visualisation, but it is just too time consuming, so took the approach of trying to bring the plugin up to date, but hit a wall (again too time consuming) so now looking at Power BI sankey and working with that and Elasticsearch. But thanks for the tip re: slack, will take a look,

Cheers
