I was wondering if anyone had forked Kibana 3 myself. If I remember some of the beta posts that led up to the Kibana 4 release, doesn't Kibana 4 have a different focus than Kibana 3? Um, something like the two versions differ in how they approach analyzing data.
If that's true, wouldn't it make sense to keep Kibana 3 around? Since people are currently happy with that approach?
As for my personal situation, I know I found Kibana 3 a LOT more intuitive. But I never built much on it before K4 was announced.
That said, I do really want https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/1583 editable filters. I'd also really really like to be able to export and import visualizations and dashboards. As in some code I could stick in a gist along side notes on how to make sure the data in ES matches the Kibana configuration. That would let the community share their work.
Another thought, has anyone at Elastic thought about making an importer for those who have hundreds of K3 dashboards? Something that can at least pull in the basics and save some time?
