Join us for our next meetup on Tuesday, January 9th at Intersys’ Office located at the WeWork NoMad location.
In this session, we will speak about Custom interactive graphs and maps in Kibana
Kibana offers a good variety of standard charts to visualize Elasticsearch data, but in some cases, they are not enough to tell a complete story. Building and maintaining a custom Kibana plugin could take significant effort. The new Kibana Vega plugin is an attempt to address both concerns. It allows you to create any custom interactive data visualization using a declarative language called Vega, without the need to write Kibana integration code. The Vega plugin allows interactive graphs, maps, and multiple custom data sources and imagery. The graphs are context-aware, so they could be placed alongside other graphs on your dashboards.
The work is underway to integrate Vega plugin into the core Kibana.
