GViz

GViz is a simple Ruby wrapper for the Google Visualization API

Install

gem install gemcutter
gem tumble
gem install JamieFlournoy-g_viz -s 

OR

gem install JamieFlournoy-g_viz --source http://gemcutter.org

Definitions

chart_type
Google Visualization Chart Constructor
data
An array of objects that responds to [](key) i.e. and array of Hashes
mapping
An array of key, description pairs that we are using as data points for our chart

GViz::Base keeps track of charts that need to be rendered.

chart = GViz::Base.new
dom_id = chart.add_graph(chart_type, data, mapping, config_options)
chart.output

You can add multiple visualizations

chart = GViz::Base.new
dom_id1 = chart.add_graph(chart_type, data, mapping, config_options)
dom_id2 = chart.add_graph(chart_type, data, mapping, config_options)
chart.output

You can use dynamic adders

#chart_type for dynamic adders are lowercased and underscored
chart = GViz::Base.new
dom_id1 = chart.add_chart_type(data, mapping, config_options)
chart.output

Examples

AnnotatedTimeLine

mapping = [[:date, 'Date'],[:sold_pencils, 'Solid Pencils'], [:title1, 'title1'], [:text1, 'text1'], 
          [:sold_pens, 'Sold Pens'], [:title2, 'title2'], [:text2, 'text2']]

data = [
  {:date => "2008-02-01", :sold_pencils => 30000, :sold_pens => 40645},
  {:date => Date.parse("2008-02-02"), :sold_pencils => 14045, :sold_pens => 20374},

]

g = GViz::Base.new
chart_id = g.add_annotated_time_line(data, mapping)
puts g.output
