Initial page load

A simple test example is the Cars dataset from Raw.js

Example Datasets

The table below shows all the columns and their datatypes that were found from the loaded data. It also selects default chart types and enables all the dimensions for charting.

Config Table

Row charts work for most data types, Bar charts require numerical data, and Time charts require Dates. Click the "Go" button to create the actual charts.

Generated charts 2

Let's filter for fast cars (low 0-60s time).

Filtering fast cars

By selecting/filtering a chart, notice that all the other charts updated immediately. Let's now pick the least economical ones (low mpg)

Filtering economic cars

Below the charts is a counter showing on how many data points match the cross-filter criteria out of the total number of data points. Here you can download a copy of the filtered data.

Finally, the table at the bottom shows the filtered data in table-format. It also groups the data by what was selected from the creation table.

Filtered Datatable

Run it yourself

  1. Get npm
  2. Install bower npm install -g bower (might need admin privileges)
  3. Get a static file-server like http-server, Apache, nginx, Caddy, or use Python's built-in SimpleHTTPServer
  4. Get the code, install dependencies, and serve the directory (this is using http-server)
git clone
cd AutoDC
npm i
bower install
npm run build
http-server .

Example Data Sets

The example data sets were plucked from PivotTable.js and Raw.js

Future Features

  • An "advanced" view for creating a chart that has more grouping options, allows the user to pick the x-axis and y-axis dimensions, etc.
  • More chart types. DC.js has documentation for donut/pie, line, bubble, scatter, heatmap, choropleth, and boxplot.
