Quick example (npm)

Here's a super-quick example of using the rawgraphs from javascript code.

In this case we'll assume we're using yarn to install the package from npm. Refer to installation for other options.

See the live demo at the end of the page for a complete example.


yarn add @rawgraphs/rawgraphs-core

Install some charts#

To do something useful with rawgraphs-core, we'll need some charts as well. Let's use the charts from the rawgraphs-charts package.

yarn add @rawgraphs/rawgraphs-charts

Rendering a bubblechart#

In this example we'll build a bubblechart from the @rawgraphs/rawgraphs-core repository. We'll assume a basic html structure like the following

<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- this is the "target" of the rawgraphs chart -->
<div id="app"></div>
<!-- this is the script where we'll do the rendering -->
<script src="src/index.js">

The chart will be renderend by javascript code in the index.js:

import { chart } from "@rawgraphs/rawgraphs-core"
import { bubblechart } from "@rawgraphs/rawgraphs-charts"
// defining some data.
const userData = [
{ size: 10, price: 2, cat: "a" },
{ size: 12, price: 1.2, cat: "a" },
{ size: 1.3,price: 2, cat: "b" },
{ size: 1.5,price: 2.2, cat: "c" },
{ size: 10, price: 4.2, cat: "b" },
{ size: 10, price: 6.2, cat: "c" },
{ size: 12, price: 2.2, cat: "b" },
// getting the target HTML node
const root = document.getElementById("app")
// define a mapping between dataset and the visual model
const mapping = {
x: { value: "size" },
y: { value: "price" },
color: { value: "cat" },
//instantiating the chart
const viz = chart(bubblechart, {
data: userData,
//rendering into the HTML node
