In this chapter, we covered installing, building, customizing, and sharing apps. Apps are a loose concept in Splunk, with many different purposes served by a simple directory of files. Hopefully we have covered the basics well enough for you to get started on your own great apps. In later chapters, we will build even more complicated object types, as well as custom code to extend Splunk in unique ways.
In the next chapter, we will dig into advanced dashboards, both covering what can be done with Splunk alone, and what can be done with the help of a few popular apps.
