asciichartpy 1.5.1

Nice-looking lightweight console ASCII line charts ╭┈╯ with no dependencies

asciichart
==========

|npm| |Travis| |Coverage Status| |license|

Console ASCII line charts in pure Javascript (for NodeJS and browsers) with no dependencies. This code is absolutely free for any usage, you just do whatever the fuck you want.

Usage
-----

NodeJS
~~~~~~

.. code:: sh

npm install asciichart

.. code:: javascript

var asciichart = require ('asciichart')
var s0 = new Array (120)
for (var i = 0; i < s0.length; i++)
s0[i] = 15 * Math.sin (i * ((Math.PI * 4) / s0.length))
console.log (asciichart.plot (s0))

Browsers
~~~~~~~~

.. code:: html


<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>asciichart</title>
<script src="asciichart.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var s0 = new Array (120)
for (var i = 0; i < s0.length; i++)
s0[i] = 15 * Math.sin (i * ((Math.PI * 4) / s0.length))
console.log (asciichart.plot (s0))
</script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Options
~~~~~~~

The width of the chart will always equal the length of data series. The height and range are determined automatically.

.. code:: javascript

var s0 = new Array (120)
for (var i = 0; i < s0.length; i++)
s0[i] = 15 * Math.sin (i * ((Math.PI * 4) / s0.length))
console.log (asciichart.plot (s0))

The output can be configured by passing a second parameter to the ``plot (series, config)`` function. The following options are supported:

.. code:: javascript

var config = {

offset: 3, // axis offset from the left (min 2)
padding: ' ', // padding string for label formatting (can be overrided)
height: 10, // any height you want

// the label format function applies default padding
format: function (x, i) { return (padding + x.toFixed (2)).slice (-padding.length) }
}

Scale To Desired Height
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code:: javascript

var s = []
for (var i = 0; i < 120; i++)
s[i] = 15 * Math.cos (i * ((Math.PI * 8) / 120)) // values range from -15 to +15
console.log (asciichart.plot (s, { height: 6 })) // this rescales the graph to ±3 lines

Auto-range
~~~~~~~~~~

.. code:: javascript

var s2 = new Array (120)
s2[0] = Math.round (Math.random () * 15)
for (i = 1; i < s2.length; i++)
s2[i] = s2[i - 1] + Math.round (Math.random () * (Math.random () > 0.5 ? 2 : -2))
console.log (asciichart.plot (s2))
