DEPRECATED

Please use the Line Chart instead - it looks the same but is much more flexible.

Count Graph Chart

A graph of counts over time for a given space. npm

Chart Example

Using this chart

This chart has a single default export. This exported function takes two arguments: a dom element, and an object full of properties. When called, this chart will render the chart inside the given DOM element. See the below example.

import countGraph from '@density/chart-count-graph';
// or: const countGraph = require('@density/chart-count-graph').default;

const element = document.getElementById('chart-container');
const props = {data: []};
countGraph(element, props);

In addition, if you'd like to render a chart in a context where the DOM is abstracted away from you, such as a React or Angular app, then check out our companion helper library.

Properties

  • data: An array of {count: <count at a given time>, timestamp: <iso 8601 timestamp>, flag?: <boolean>} objects. Any objects with the "flag" property set to true will draw in a flag at that timestamp with its count. Data must be in chronological order. Example: [{"count": 4, "timestamp": "2017-03-28T12:00:00.000Z"}, {"count": 3, "timestamp": "2017-03-28T12:01:00.000Z", "flag": true}]

  • start (optional) A moment that will be used as the starting point of the graph. If omitted, the graph will fit its data.

  • end (optional) A moment that will be used as the ending point of the graph. If omitted, the graph will fit its data.

  • width (optional) An integer that denotes the width of this chart in pixels. Defaults to 1000.

  • height (optional) An integer that denotes the width of this chart in pixels. Defaults to 400.

  • initialCount (optional) An integer to specify what the count was before the first event. Defaults to 0.

  • xAxisResolution (optional) A value of either hour (the default), day, or week. This value determines the distance between ticks on the x axis. This is important because for large time spans, a value of hour will produce too many labels and they will all collide into a big blob. Not good.

  • capacity (optional) A value used to draw the light-blue filled region behind the graph. This traditionally (in the graphs that we've used in our dashboard thus-far) indicated the capacity in people that a space can hold. Defaults to null, which won't draw a capacity line.

  • timeZone (optional) An IANA timezone as specified here that the graph should translate all datapoints and axis labels into prior to rendering. Defaults to UTC, which doesn't shift the datapoints.

  • timeZoneFormat (optional) A callback that is passed the current IANA timezone and is expected to return a shorter time zone formatting string to include in the bottom overlay. This should only be used if bottomOverlayLabelFormat is not specified. For example, if timeZoneFormat={n => n === 'America/New_York' ? 'ET' : n} is passed, then if the chart is rendered with timeZone="America/New_York", then the timezone will be displayed in the bottom overlay as HH:MM A (ET).

  • xAxisResolution (optional) One of the values week, day, or hour. This value determines the resolution of the ticks on the x axis - one tick per week, one tick per day, or one tick per hour. Defaults to hour.

  • xAxisLabelFormat (optional) A mapping function that can be used to change the format of each label on the x axis. Each invocation of the function is passed an ISO timestamp for the given datapoint, and as a return value, the actual value to render on the axis is expected. Defaults to a function that extracts the hour from the timestamp, and adds an a or p suffix to indicate if the hour is in the am or pm (ie, '5p').

  • yAxisLabelFormat (optional) A mapping function that can be used to change the format of each label on the y axis. Each invocation of the function is passed the count at the given marker on the y axis, and as a return value, the actual value to render on the axis is expected. Defaults to a noop function.

  • bottomOverlayLabelFormat (optional) A mapping function that can be used to change the format of each label on the x axis. Each invocation of the function is passed an ISO timestamp at the current position that the user has touched / moused over, and as a return value, the actual value to render on the axis is expected. Defaults to a function that produces values like 5:23p (ET) Mon Apr 2.

  • topOverlayLabelFormat (optional) A mapping function that can be used to change the format of the value within the top overlay box. Each invocation of the function is passed the count at the current position that the user has touched / moused over, and as a return value, the actual value to render on the axis is expected. Defaults to a noop function.

  • renderPersonIcon (optional) A boolean indicating if the upper overlay box should contain the person icon or not. Defaults to true.
