First prototype underway
Posted on October 13, 2015
I'm really pleased to have started building my first D3.js code generator tool. I thought I would start with something simple. So I started with a basic horizontal bar chart generator.
The idea is quite simple really. You provide the data as a comma delimited series, make a few selections as you how you want the graph to look (or stay with the defaults), and hit submit.
Please note: shown below is a screenshot image, not an actual form, so don't try to fill it in!
To be sure, there are lots of improvements to be made, but I had to start somewhere. Some of the things on the list for improvement are
- More options for user to influence the look of the chart
- Responsive design to automatically shrink for mobiles
- Different colour bars
- Better labelling options
- Ability to group bars
- Vertical bar option, which may be a separate version
