The analysis_of_splunkbase_apps allows a Splunk® Enterprise administrator to analyze web site content. This App also provides examples of:
Multi-search (the entire App is mostly powered by one search)
Various form options
Custom CSS and js
Custom data collection script
After being asked for a list of Splunk Apps in a spreadsheet a few times, I found a need to build this App. This App provides a simple dashboard with App stats and allows you to search for Splunk Apps within Splunk. It was also designed to work if you are offline, as long as you have been online once to collect data.
Splunk 6.3+ now has most of this built in, but the offline benefits of this App still make it useful.
This was a collaborative effort:
James Donn - Dashboards and Searches
Kristofer Hutchinson - Custom CSS and .js
Chhean Saur - Data Collection script
To install and configure this app on your supported platform, follow these steps:
Configure the following index within your environment, following your best practices:
coldPath = $SPLUNK_DB/apps/colddb
homePath = $SPLUNK_DB/apps/db
thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/apps/thaweddb
frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 604800
Allow time for the script to run to gather data. If you need it right away, you can restart your Splunk Search Head.
The "Update Splunk Apps KV Store" scheduled search needs time to run, but you can also run it manually.
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/analysis_of_splunkbase_apps/bin/getSplunkAppsV1.py runs every four hours to collect the latest list of Splunk Apps by calling Splunkbase's API.

You have Splunk on your laptop and you are in a meeting where someone asks, "Does Splunk have an App for that?". The problem is that you do not have wireless access because it is down, or you are a visiting guest. Just launch up this App and search away.
