Configuration

Chart type

Specify the visualization type. If no type is set, the library will automatically set the best option. Full list of chart types.

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  type: 'area'
});

Date Format

Date formatting is possible by passing either a string or function to dateFormat. In either case, this value will be set as the axis.x.tick.format configuration property. As a built-in feature of C3.js, functions are used as an iterator, receiving the date for each interval in milliseconds.

// Use a string template
const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  dateFormat: '%Y-%m'
});

// .. or a function
const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  dateFormat: function(ms){
    const date = new Date(ms);
    return date.getFullYear();
  }
});

Date Localization: Dates will be localized to the browser's timezone by default. This is generally desirable, but there are some instances where you may wish to retain the timezones that are returned by the API. You can disable this behavior in any C3.js-based visualization by setting axis.x.localtime to false:

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  axis: {
    x: {
      localtime: false
    }
  }
});

Multiple query results on one chart

const client = new KeenAnalysis({
  projectId: 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID',
  readKey: 'YOUR_READ_KEY'
});

const queryPageviews = client
  .query({
    analysis_type: 'count',
    event_collection: 'pageviews',
    timeframe: 'this_30_days',
    interval: 'daily'
  });

const queryFormSubmissions = client
  .query({
    analysis_type: 'count',
    event_collection: 'form_submissions',
    timeframe: 'this_30_days',
    interval: 'daily'
  });

client
  .run([queryPageviews, queryFormSubmissions])
  .then(results => {
    const chart = new KeenDataviz({
      container: '#some_container',
      results,
      // optional
      labelMapping: {
        'pageviews count': 'Pageviews',
        'form_submissions count': 'Forms collected'
      }
      // or labelMapping RegExp
    });
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // Handle errors
    console.error(err);
  });

Refresh every 1 minute

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container',
  clearOnRender: true, // clear c3
  transition: {
    duration: 0 // to avoid animation during re-render
  }
});

const fetchResultsAndRender = () => {
  client
    .query({
      analysis_type: 'count',
      event_collection: 'pageviews',
      timeframe: 'previous_60_minutes',
      interval: 'minutely'
    })
    .then(results => {
      chart.render(results);
    });
};

const intervalTime = 60 * 1000; // every minute, because query interval is "minutely"

setInterval( () => {
  fetchResultsAndRender();
}, intervalTime);

fetchResultsAndRender(); // initial fetch and render

C3 options

All of the options are passed to C3. See https://c3js.org/reference.html

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required

  // c3 options example, read more https://c3js.org/reference.html
  axis: {
    x: {
      localtime: false
    }
  },
  transition: {
    duration: 3000
  },
  zoom: {
    enabled: true
  },
  grid: {
    x: {
      show: true
    },
    y: {
      show: true
    }
  },
  size: {
    // https://c3js.org/reference.html#size-width
    // It's better to control the size using the CSS of the container HTML element
  },
  onrendered: () => {
    // do something when the chart is ready... https://c3js.org/reference.html#onrendered
  }
});

Hide the Title

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  title: false
});

Legend

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required

  // default values
  legend: {
    show: true,
    position: 'right', // top, bottom, left, right
    label: {
      textMaxLength: 12
    },
    pagination: {
      offset: 0, // start from
      limit: 5 // items per page
    },
    tooltip: {
      show: true,
      pointer: true
    },

    // sort: (columns) => { return columns; } // custom sorting function
  }
});

Legend sort

Default method of sorting is by column name ASC. You can use your own sorting function

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required

  // default values
  legend: {
    show: true,
    position: 'right', // top, bottom, left, right

    sort: function (columns) {
      const columnsSorted = [];
      columns.forEach(column => {
        if (column[0] !== 'x') {
          let sumOfValues = column.slice(1).reduce((acc = 0, item) => {
            return acc + item;
          });
          columnsSorted.push({ columnName: column[0], columnSum: sumOfValues});
        }
      });

      // let's sort by SUM, DESC
      columnsSorted.sort(function(a, b) {
        return b.columnSum - a.columnSum;
      });

      return columnsSorted.map(item => item.columnName);
    }
  }
});

Custom colors

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  colors: ['#1167c5', 'green', '#000000']
});

Color mapping

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  colorMapping: {
    'some_label_1': '#c51111',
    'some_label_2': '#11c53b'
  }
});

Label mapping

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  labelMapping: {
    'long_complex_key_name': 'Human readable label',
  }
});

Label mapping RegExp

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  labelMappingRegExp: [
    [/anytext/, 'Purchases'],
    [/lorem ipsum/gi, 'Visits']
  ]
});

Error mapping

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  errorMapping: {
    'No data to display': 'my custom message 123'
  }
});

Hide error messages

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  showErrorMessages: false
});

Custom labels for funnels

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  labels: [
    'Step 1',
    'Step 2',
    'Step 3'
  ]
});

Render results

By default you can pass results with a configuration object

const client = new KeenAnalysis({
  projectId: 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID',
  readKey: 'YOUR_READ_KEY'
});

// execute some query
client
  .query({
    analysis_type: 'count',
    event_collection: 'pageviews',
    timeframe: 'this_160_days'
  })
  .then(results => {
    const chart = new KeenDataviz({
      container: '#some_container', // required
      results
    });
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // Handle errors
  });

The same, but with render function:

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  showLoadingSpinner: true
});

const client = new KeenAnalysis({
  projectId: 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID',
  readKey: 'YOUR_READ_KEY'
});

// execute some query
client
  .query({
    analysis_type: 'count',
    event_collection: 'pageviews',
    timeframe: 'this_30_days'
  })
  .then(results => {
    // Handle results
    chart.render(results);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // Handle errors
  });

Render as a Promise

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  renderAsPromise: true
});

chart
  .render(results)
  .then({
    // do something after rendering is complete
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // handle render error
  });

Loading spinner animation (aka prepare())

Long query response time? Use a loading spinner to let users know, that data is loading.

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  showLoadingSpinner: true
});

const client = new KeenAnalysis({
  projectId: 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID',
  readKey: 'YOUR_READ_KEY'
});

// execute some query
client
  .query({
    analysis_type: 'count',
    event_collection: 'pageviews',
    timeframe: 'this_160_days'
  })
  .then(results => {
    // Handle results
    chart.render(results);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    // Handle errors
  });

Sort groups

Determine how groupBy results are sorted (asc for ascending, desc for descending).

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  sortGroups: 'asc'
});

Sort intervals

Determine how interval results are sorted (asc for ascending, desc for descending).

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  sortIntervals: 'desc'
});

Stacked chart

Create a stacked chart, used to break down and compare parts of a whole.

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  stacked: true
});

Extraction Table Columns Order

/*
 dummy event model
 {
   user: {
     email: 'john@doe.com'
   },
   favourite_fruit: 'Avocado'
 }
*/
const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  table: {
    columns: ['favourite_fruit', 'user.email', 'keen.created_at'] // custom order of the columns
  }
});

Extraction Table Pagination

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
  table: {
    pagination: {
      limit: 10 // items per page
    }
  }
});

Custom data parser

const chart = new KeenDataviz({
  container: '#some_container', // required
});

// dummy result
const result = {
  'clicks': [3, 14, 7, 22, 11, 55, 11, 22],
  'views': [14, 58, 11, 32, 11, 23, 45, 66]
};

function customParser(data){
    const ds = new KeenDataset();
    Object.keys(data).forEach(dataKey => {
      ds.appendColumn(dataKey);
      data[dataKey].forEach((item, itemIndex) => {
        ds.set([dataKey, itemIndex+1], item);
      });
    });
    return ds;
}

chart
  .render(customParser(result));

Partial interval visual indicator

By default, it's enabled for all charts with relative time frames starting with this_ eg. this_x_hours. To hide it, use a configuration property:

partialIntervalIndicator: false

Depracation warnings

You can turn off deprecation warnings with

const chart = new Keen.Dataviz({
  container: '#container', // required
  showDeprecationWarnings: false
});
