Kibana NPM


(dilip bk) #1

Hi ,

I have downloaded the kibana latest version " kibana-5.6.5-linux-x86_64.tar.gz " for linux machine .
Where when i untar in the windows i am not able to see the node/bin/npm does not have the data inside the npm file

But when untar the kibana-5.6.5-linux-x86_64.tar.gz i am able to see the data

Any reason for that

Note: the latest version of Kibana is 6.2.2, and for 5.x the latest version is 5.6.8

If you're just trying to run Kibana in linux, I'd suggest looking up the documentation on downloading, installing and running:

Keep reading for the details about configuring and accessing Kibana.

Kibana is not a Maven project. The only way to get it running would be to read the documentation that I linked you to

Kibana comes with its own plugin installer. Once the archive is unpacked, it's available in ./bin/kibana-plugin

./bin/kibana-plugin 

  Usage: bin/kibana-plugin [command] [options]
  
  The Kibana plugin manager enables you to install and remove plugins that provide additional functionality to Kibana
  
  Commands:
    list  [options]                 list installed plugins
    install  [options] <plugin/url> install a plugin
    remove  [options] <plugin>      remove a plugin
    help  <command>                 get the help for a specific command

The plugin installer handles things like packing the frontend dependencies into a usable bundle.

If you're trying to install plugins some other way, there's pretty much no way that can be supported; meaning you would be on your own.
