Analemma is a Clojure library for generating charts and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
Latest commit 9b55dc3 @liebke Merged pull request #7 from pjlegato/master.
Fix Index.html documentation to say ":transpose-data??" with two question marks instead of one.


Analemma is a Clojure-based SVG DSL and charting library. In astronomy, an analemma is the figure drawn in the sky by the different positions of the Sun recorded at the same time and location during the course of a year.

Example Charts

Plotting Analemma Data

(spit "analemma.svg"
        (-> (xy-plot :xmin -30 :maxx 10,
                     :ymin -30 :maxy 30
                     :height 500 :width 500)
	     (add-points analemma-data))))

Plotting Sine and Cosine

(spit "sin-cos.svg"
        (let [x (range -5 5 0.05)
              y1 (map #(Math/cos %) x)
              y2 (map #(Math/sin %) x)]
          (-> (xy-plot :minx -5 :xmax 5 :ymin -1.5 :maxy 1.5)
              (add-points [x y1] :transpose-data?? true)
              (add-points [x y2] :transpose-data?? true
                          :color (rgb 255 0 0))))))

Creating the Analemma logo

    (apply group
           (rect 0 0 160 500 :fill "#ffffff")
           (-> (text {:x 120 :y 60} "Analemma")
               (style :fill #"000066"
                      :font-family "Garamond"
                      :font-size "75px"
                      :alignment-baseline :middle))
           (for [[x y] analemma-data]
             (circle (translate-value x -30 5 0 125)
                     (translate-value y -25 30 125 0)
                     2 :fill "#000066")))))
