NPM Release Build Status Dependency Status Gitter 1.0 progress

Beautiful javascript scales and axes.

Installing

If you use NPM, run npm install d3plus-axis --save. Otherwise, download the latest release. The released bundle supports AMD, CommonJS, and vanilla environments. You can also load directly from d3plus.org:

<script src="https://d3plus.org/js/d3plus-axis.v0.3.full.min.js"></script>

Creating an Axis

The d3plus-axis module expands on the ideas presented in d3-axis, most notably by adding grid lines and fitting the axis within the allotted space. To create a bottom aligned axis in an SVG group defined like this:

<svg width=600 height=300>
  <g id="my-axis"></g>
</svg>

Here is the javascript needed:

var bottom = new d3plus.AxisBottom()
  .select("#my-axis")
  .domain([0, 10])
  .width(600)
  .height(300)
  .render();

All four orientations available as shorthand methods for the generalized Axis class that they all extend. These axis classes are used to create the x/y plot in d3plus-plot visualizations.

# Axis.outerBounds() <>

If called after the elements have been drawn to DOM, will returns the outer bounds of the axis content.

This is a static method of Axis.

{"width": 180, "height": 24, "x": 10, "y": 20}

# Axis.padding([value]) <>

If value is specified, sets the padding between each tick label to the specified number and returns the current class instance.

# Axis.paddingOuter([value]) <>

If value is specified, sets the outer padding of band scales to the specified number and returns the current class instance.

This is a static method of Axis, and is chainable with other methods of this Class.

# Axis.range([value]) <>

If value is specified, sets the scale range (in pixels) of the axis and returns the current class instance. The given array must have 2 values, but one may be undefined to allow the default behavior for that value.

# new AxisBottom()

Shorthand method for creating an axis where the ticks are drawn below the horizontal domain path. Extends all functionality of the base Axis class.


AxisLeft <>

This is a global class, and extends all of the methods and functionality of Axis.

# new AxisLeft()

Shorthand method for creating an axis where the ticks are drawn to the left of the vertical domain path. Extends all functionality of the base Axis class.


AxisRight <>

This is a global class, and extends all of the methods and functionality of Axis.

# new AxisRight()

Shorthand method for creating an axis where the ticks are drawn to the right of the vertical domain path. Extends all functionality of the base Axis class.


AxisTop <>

This is a global class, and extends all of the methods and functionality of Axis.

# new AxisTop()

Shorthand method for creating an axis where the ticks are drawn above the vertical domain path. Extends all functionality of the base Axis class.


d3plus.date(date) <>

Returns a javascript Date object for a given a Number (representing either a 4-digit year or milliseconds since epoch) or a String that is in valid dateString format. Besides the 4-digit year parsing, this function is useful when needing to parse negative (BC) years, which the vanilla Date object cannot parse.

This is a global function.
