Graphik

Make simple charts quickly.

Graphik was built to let journalists rapidly build chart images with a predefined visual style, without needing special software and a team of graphic designers.

Usage

Try it here: http://maxharlow.com/graphik

Paste your data in, configure the title and other furniture, then export an image file. If necessary the image can then be imported into Adobe Illustrator for any final touches.

Customising

By default, Graphik uses its own style, but unlike other chart-creating tools but you can easily customise it to your own. To do so:

  1. Fork this repository into your GitHub account using the Fork button above.
  2. In your forked version edit vendor-style.css, which defines the colours, fonts, and other stylistic elements, and vendor-layout.json, which controls how the different elements of the chart are postioned.
  3. You can now use your customised version at: http://<YOUR-ACCOUNT>.github.io/graphik.

Updating

You can get the latest updates from this repository without overwriting your customisations. To do this you need to have:

$ git remote add upstream https://github.com/maxharlow/graphik.git

Then when you want to update, run:

$ git pull -X ours upstream master
$ git push origin master
