Tutorial for building Kibana 5 Plugin



Somebody tell me where can I find a beginner level tutorial for building Kibana 5 plugin? I found a video tutorial here https://www.elastic.co/elasticon/conf/2016/sf/how-to-build-your-own-kibana-plugins , but that is dated Feb 19, 2016. I would like to develop Kibana 5 plugins, and I am looking for an updated tutorial. Any help is really appreciated.

I'm not aware of any tutorials on developing plugins for Kibana 5. One thing that contributes to that is that Kibana doesn't have a publicly documented API, neither for older versions nor for the new 5.0 release.

So most plugin development right now is in good faith. Apart from the link above, there's been some tutorials by community members, e.g. https://www.timroes.de/2015/12/02/writing-kibana-4-plugins-basics/. That one applies to Kibana 4 as well, but changes are reasonably minimal between 4 and 5.

I would also check out some examples; many use the same templates. https://github.com/elastic/kibana/wiki/Known-Plugins
