Charty - Visualizing your data in Ruby

Build Status Binder

Charty is open-source Ruby library for visualizing your data in a simple way. In Charty, you need to write very few lines of code for representing what you want to do. It lets you focus on your analysis of data, instead of plotting.

Installation

MacOS:

$ brew install Python
$ pip3 install matplotlib
$ bundle

Ubuntu + pyenv

You should install tk libraries before install python and should add enabling shared library option to installing python. So you may have to do pyenv uninstall 3.x.x first.

$ apt install -y tk-dev python3-tk
$ CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-shared" pyenv install 3.x.x

With Matplotlib

sudo gem install charty --pre
sudo gem install matplotlib
sudo apt install python3-pip
sudo python3 -m pip install -U pip matplotlib

Development with Docker

e.g.

$ bundle install
$ docker build -f ./Dockerfile.dev -t charty-dev:0.1 .
$ docker run -it -v ${PWD}:/charty -w /charty charty-dev:0.1 ./bin/console
irb(main):001:0> Charty::VERSION
=> "0.1.4-dev"

# When using jupyter notebook
$ docker run -it -v ${PWD}:/charty -w /charty -p 8888:8888 charty-dev:0.1

Usage

require 'charty'
charty = Charty::Plotter.new(:pyplot)

bar = charty.bar do
  series [0,1,2,3,4], [10,40,20,90,70], label: "sample1"
  series [0,1,2,3,4], [90,80,70,60,50], label: "sample2"
  series [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8], [50,60,20,30,10, 90, 0, 100, 50], label: "sample3"
  range x: 0..10, y: 1..100
  xlabel 'foo'
  ylabel 'bar'
  title 'bar plot'
end
bar.render("sample_images/bar_pyplot.png")

Charty also supports Daru::DataFrame, Numo::NArray, NMatrix and ActiveRecord as Data Abstraction Layer. For example.

require 'charty'
charty = Charty::Plotter.new(:pyplot)


### when Daru::DataFrame
require 'daru'
df = Daru::DataFrame.new({'a':[1,2,3,4], 'b':[4,5,6,7], 'c':[8, 9, 10, 11]})
charty.table = df


### when Numo::NArray
require "numo/narray"
narray = Numo::DFloat.new(3,5).seq
charty.table = narray


### when NMatrix
require "nmatrix"
nmatrix = NMatrix.new([3, 4], [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11], dtype: :int64)
charty.table = nmatrix


### when ActiveRecord
require "active_record"
ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(adapter: "sqlite3", database: ":memory:")
ActiveRecord::Schema.define do
  create_table :foos do |t|
    t.integer :price
    t.integer :sales
  end
end
class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
end
100.times{|i| Foo.create!(price: 10 * i, sales: (1..100).to_a.sample) }
sales = Foo.where("sales >= 40")
charty.table = sales


bar = charty.to_bar(:price, :sales)
bar.render('sample')

box_plot = charty.to_box_plot(:price, :sales)
box_plot.render('sample')

bubble = charty.to_bubble(:price, :sales, :id)
bubble.render('sample')

curve = charty.to_curve(:price, :sales)
curve.render('sample')

scatter = charty.to_scatter(:price, :sales)
scatter.render('sample')

error_bar = charty.to_error_bar(:price, :sales)
error_bar.render('sample')

hst= charty.to_hst(:price, :sales)
hst.render('sample')

Examples

create an instance of the library you want to use.

require 'charty'

# when you want to use matplotlib.pyplot
charty = Charty::Plotter.new(:pyplot)

# when you want to use gruff
charty = Charty::Plotter.new(:gruff)

# when you wanto to use rubyplot
charty = Charty::Plotter.new(:rubyplot)

Bar

bar = charty.bar do
  series [0,1,2,3,4], [10,40,20,90,70], label: "sample1"
  series [0,1,2,3,4], [90,80,70,60,50], label: "sample2"
  series [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8], [50,60,20,30,10, 90, 0, 100, 50], label: "sample3"
  range x: 0..10, y: 1..100
  xlabel 'foo'
  ylabel 'bar'
  title 'bar plot'
