NAME
    Jifty::Plugin::Chart - A charting API for Jifty

SYNOPSIS
    In your config.yml:

      Plugins:
        - Chart: {}

    In your Mason templates:

      <% Jifty->web->chart(
          type   => 'Bar',
          width  => 400,
          height => 300,
          data   => [
              [ '2004', '2005', '2006', '2007' ], # labels
              [ 14,     15,     17,     22     ], # first data set
              [ 22,     25,     20,     21     ], # second data set
          ],
      ) %>

DESCRIPTION
    CAUTION: This plugin is experimental. The API *will* change.

    This plugin provides a charting API that can be used by Jifty
    applications to build data visualizations without regard to the
    underlying rendering mechanism.

    As of this writing, the API is a barely veiled interface over Chart.
    However, I intend to expand the interface to apply to something like
    Maani's XML/SWF Charts or Imprise Javascript charts or even something
    like OpenLaszlo (or something Open Source and Perl if I can find or
    build such a thing in time).

INTERFACE
    By adding this method to the plugin configuration for your Jifty
    application, you will cause Jifty::Web to inherit a new method, "chart",
    which is the cornerstone of this API.

    This method is described in Jifty::Plugin::Chart::Web and an example is
    shown in the "SYNOPSIS" above.

CONFIGURATION
    Here is an example configuration for config.yml:

      Plugins:
        - Chart:
            DefaultRenderer: PlotKit
            PreloadRenderers:
             - XMLSWF
             - SimpleBars
             - App::Renderer::Custom

    The available options are:

    DefaultRenderer
        This is the name of the class to use as the default renderer.
        Jifty::Plugin::Chart::Renderer::Chart is the current default, but
        that could change in the future. It's recommended that you set this
        to your preference.

    PreloadRenderers
        This is a list of other render classes to load during
        initialization. If they are not loaded during initialization some
        renderers may not work correctly the first time they are run because
        they are not able to inform Jifty of the CSS or JS files they need
        before that part of the page is already rendered. If you use the
        "renderer" option of "chart" in Jifty::Plugin::Chart::Web, then you
        should make sure any value you use is set here in the configuration
        to make sure it works properly.

METHODS
  init
    Adds the "chart" in Jifty::Plugin::Chart::Web method to Jifty::Web.

  init_renderer
      my $renderer = $chart_plugin->init_renderer($renderer_class)

    This is a helper method that is used by the API to initialize the
    renderer class. This is handled automatically so you probably shouldn't
    use this.
