MetricsGraphics is a library built for visualizing and laying out time-series data. At around 15kB (gzipped), it provides a simple way to produce common types of graphics in a principled and consistent way. The library currently supports line charts, scatterplots and histograms, as well as features like rug plots.


All you need to do is add an entry node to your document:

<div id="chart"></div>

Then, use the id to mount the chart:

import LineChart from 'metrics-graphics'

new LineChart({
  data, // some array of data objects
  width: 600,
  height: 200,
  target: '#chart',
  area: true,
  xAccessor: 'date',
  yAccessor: 'value'

That's it!
