Row-based threshold coloring

Thresholding with Row Coloring

Cell based threshold coloring

Thresholding with Cell Coloring

Cell based threshold value coloring

Thresholding with Value Coloring

RowColumn threshold coloring

This option sets the row color to the "highest" threshold found for all cells in row.

It also sets the color for each cell according to the threshold (you can tell which columns actually exceeded the threshold).

This means - a row can have an overall color, with each cell indicating it's real threshold color.

Thresholding with RowColumn1

Thresholding with RowColumn2

RowColumn threshold coloring including row counter

Same as above, but with row counter included

Thresholding with RowColumn including row count


  • Feature parity with built-in Grafana Table Panel
  • Row coloring uses the "highest" threshold color of all columns
  • New "RowColumn" threshold color option: Sets color to "highest" threshold found for all cells in row. Also sets color for each cell according to the threshold. This means - a row can have an overall color, with each cell indicating it's real threshold color.
  • Set font size for rows
  • Scrolling
  • Paging
    • Preset page sizes
    • Multiple paging types
    • Dropdown for page size
  • Row Numbers reactive to filtering
  • Searchable table content (filtering), regex enabled
  • Columns names can be aliased
  • URLs inside row text can be "clicked"
  • Rows can have a click-through URL
  • Multi-Column Sorting
  • Horizontal scrolling enabled when columns are wider than panel


  • [+] Column is not working


This plugin relies on Yarn, typical build sequence:

yarn install
yarn build

For development, you can run:

yarn install
yarn watch

The code will be parsed then copied into "dist" if the build passes without errors.

Docker Support

A docker-compose.yml file is include for easy development and testing, just run

docker-compose up

Then browse to (http://localhost:3000)


A spec file is included to facilitate RPM based deployments, to generate run

make rpm

External Dependencies
