Python NVD3 - Chart Library for d3.js

Latest Version: 0.13.10

NVD3 is an attempt to build re-usable charts and chart components for d3.js without taking away the power that d3.js offers you.

Installation

Install, upgrade and uninstall python-nvd3 with these commands:

$ pip install python-nvd3
$ pip install --upgrade python-nvd3
$ pip uninstall python-nvd3

Dependecies

D3 and NvD3 can be installed through bower (which itself can be installed through npm). See http://bower.io/ and https://npmjs.org for further information. To install bower globally execute:

$ npm install -g bower

Note : you might prefer to save your npm dependencies locally in a package.json file.

Then in the directory where you will use python-nvd3, just execute the following commands:

$ bower install d3#3.3.8
$ bower install nvd3#1.1.12-beta

This will create a directory “bower_components” where d3 & nvd3 will be saved.

Note : you might prefer to save your bower dependencies locally in a bower.json file. You can also configure the directory where your bower dependencies will be saved adding a .bowerrc file in your project root directory.

Usage

After installation use python-nvd3 as follows

from nvd3 import pieChart

#Open File to write the D3 Graph
output_file = open('test-nvd3.html', 'w')

type = 'pieChart'
chart = pieChart(name=type, color_category='category20c', height=450, width=450)
chart.set_containerheader("\n\n<h2>" + type + "</h2>\n\n")

#Create the keys
xdata = ["Orange", "Banana", "Pear", "Kiwi", "Apple", "Strawberry", "Pineapple"]
ydata = [3, 4, 0, 1, 5, 7, 3]

#Add the serie
extra_serie = {"tooltip": {"y_start": "", "y_end": " cal"}}
chart.add_serie(y=ydata, x=xdata, extra=extra_serie)
chart.buildhtml()
output_file.write(chart.htmlcontent)

#close Html file
output_file.close()

See the file examples.py for more samples.
