The Grafana community is one of the most vibrant in all of web development. And to celebrate the conclusion of GrafanCONline, the launch of Grafana 8 and Tempo 1.0, and so much more, we’re pleased to share this dashboard showcase. 

(And in case you missed any of the great sessions at GrafanaCONline, the videos are available on demand now!)

Each of these 12 dashboards was built by our community, for our community. They are available on our website, and you can easily add them to any Grafana instance by copying-and-pasting their dashboard ID.

Now, let’s check out some dashboards!

GitHub default dashboard

This dashboard created by Éamon Ryan uses a sampling of the available features in the GitHub data source to show interesting information about a given GitHub repository. A version of this dashboard is also bundled within the data source plugin.

For this dashboard to work, make sure you have a properly configured GitHub data source. By default, it will read from the grafana/grafana repository, but any can be used.

Read more about the plugin on the Grafana blog. The GitHub datasource plugin is also available for download here.
