Introduction

GChart is a Haskell wrapper around Google Chart API.

There is a library on Hackage called GoogleChart which provides another wrapper, however it has not been updated in a long while. GChart improves upon that effort by trying to design a more elegant API, and supporting more chart types and features.

Installation

cabal install hs-gchart

Documentation

Getting Started

These examples below are available in examples/Examples.hs in the source tarball. Look at the source file for more Some examples are taken from this article

For examples 1 and 2, the following code is common

dataSeries1 :: [Int]
dataSeries1 = [10,20,8,25,5,3,15,9,5]

labelSeries1 = ["Egg nog",
                "Christmas Ham",
                "Milk (not including egg nog)",
                "Cookies",
                "Roasted Chestnuts",
                "Chocolate",
                "Various Other Beverages",
                "Various Other Foods",
                "Snacks"]

Example 1 : Pie Chart

The code below

 christmasPie = getChartUrl $ do setChartSize 600 300
                                 setDataEncoding simple
                                 setChartType Pie
                                 addChartData dataSeries1
                                 setChartTitle "Food and Drink Consumed Christmas 2007"
                                 setLabels labelSeries1
                                 setColors ["00AF33",
                                            "4BB74C",
                                            "EE2C2C",
                                            "CC3232",
                                            "33FF33",
                                            "66FF66",
                                            "9AFF9A",
                                            "C1FFC1",
                                            "CCFFCC" ]

Generates the following chart.

Example 2 : Bar Chart

The code below

barGraph = getChartUrl $ do setChartSize 600 300
                            setDataEncoding simple
                            setChartType BarHorizontalGrouped
                            addChartData dataSeries1
                            setChartTitle "Food and Drink Consumed Christmas 2007"
                            addAxis $ makeAxis {  axisType = AxisBottom }
                            addAxis $ makeAxis {  axisType = AxisLeft,
                                                  axisLabels = Just labelSeries1 }
                            addColor "00AF33"

Generates the following chart

Example 3 : Line XY Chart 1

The code below

linexyGraph1 =
    getChartUrl $ do setChartSize 800 300
                     setChartType LineXY
                     setDataEncoding text
                     setChartTitle "Projected Christmas Cheer for 2007"
                     setGrid $ makeGrid { xAxisStep = 3.333,
                                          yAxisStep = 10,
                                          lineSegmentLength = Just 1,
                                          blankSegmentLength = Just 3 }
                     addAxis $ makeAxis { axisType = AxisLeft,
                                          axisRange = Just $ Range (0,100) (Just 50) }
                     addAxis $ makeAxis { axisType = AxisBottom,
                                          axisLabels = Just $ ["Dec 1st"] ++ blanks 4 ++ ["6th"] ++ blanks 18 ++ ["25th","26th"] ++ blanks 4 ++ ["Dec 31st"] }
                     addChartDataXY dataSeries2

dataSeries5 :: [(Int,Int)]
dataSeries5 = zip xseries yseries where
             xseries = map encSimpleReverse "984sttvuvkQIBLKNCAIipr3z9"
             yseries = map encSimpleReverse "DEJPgq0uov17_zwopQOD"

encSimpleReverse :: Char -> Int
encSimpleReverse c | ord c >= ord 'A' && ord c <= ord 'Z' = (ord c - ord 'A')
                   | ord c >= ord 'a' && ord c <= ord 'z' = 26 + (ord c - ord 'a')
                   | ord c >= ord '0' && ord c <= ord '9' = 52 + (ord c - ord '0')
                   | otherwise = -1

Generates the following chart
