Example: Basic template using JavaScript

This example shows how to use JavaScript to create a basic template with a chart and an events viewer that displays results from a search.


To use this code, save it as an HTML file under an existing app in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/app_name/django/app_name/templates, then view the page in Splunk. For example, to view mypage.html in mysplunkapp, go to http://localhost:8000/dj/mysplunkapp/mypage. For more about creating an app, see How to create a Web Framework app using SplunkJS Stack.
