CSV data source for Grafana

The Grafana CSV Datasource plugin is designed to load CSV data into Grafana, expanding your capabilities to visualize and analyze data stored in CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format. Whether you have log files, historical data, or other datasets in CSV format, this plugin streamlines the process of integrating this data into your Grafana dashboards.


For comprehensive instructions on setting up and configuring the Grafana CSV Datasource, please consult our official documentation.

Maintenance: Now the plugin is being maintained by Grafana Labs. Big thanks to Marcus Olsson for the awesome work!
