Community use case
One of the three plugins that complete Grafana is Dynamic Text Panel. With Dynamic Text, Data Manipulation, and Apache ECharts Panel you can create fully functional web applications meeting your needs and expectations.
Select Editor to display
Using the dedicated code editor with CSS syntax highlighting, you can create new CSS styles or alter the default ones.
Padding and margins
To display content without padding and margins, you need to override the parent CSS style.
Code Syntax Highlighting
Code syntax highlighting is based on the
highlight.js library, which supports key programming languages.
We included the Accessibility (A11Y) syntax highlighting style for light and dark themes. You can override it in the styles editor by copying one of the styles from the project source files.
