Introduction

Graphs and Charts

If you can write the SQL to extract the data you want to plot, Plotalot will use the Google Visualization API to dynamically draw various different charts or tables, with numerous formatting options.

  • Get this

  • Line graphs, scatter graphs, and area graphs with multiple plots
  • Horizontal or vertical stacked or grouped bar charts
  • 2D or 3D pie charts
  • Gauges, timelines, bubble charts
  • Combo charts
  • Legend at top, bottom, left, right, or none
  • Optional grid
  • Titles and axis labels can be simple text or SQL queries
  • Axis limits can be automatic, fixed, or SQL generated
  • Unlimited chart size
  • Charts can be responsive.
  • SQL can include various types of variables
  • Query the local site database or any other MySql database
  • Can also produce tables or single items (the first column of the first row returned by your SQL)
  • No libraries to install, just a component and a plugin
  • Charts can be cached on your web-server to reduce database load
  • Plotalot can be built in to your own code to add charting to your own components

You can include as many charts as you like, anywhere in any article, using the Plotalot plugin. Usage is fully documented in a rather large, but free, PDF user guide.


Bought the minimum version for the plugin. If you know SQL and can make tables in your database, this component is super amazing. It was exactly what I was searching for, allowing me to move some HTML tables into a database table, change .jpg graphs to beautiful, dynamic graphs and improve the overall appearance of several articles. Beautifully designed and implemented component. Thank you!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for all the reviews everyone. They encourage me to keep on developing Plotalot!

I bought this extension to include charts in a custom component I was developing for a customer.

It saved me a lot of time. I did not even need to contact the developer as it comes with a developer guide and an sample component to use as example.


Simply the best!

I don't write many reviews but everyone needs to know how amazing this extension is!!!



My requirements were quite bespoke so I spent some time exploring the best charting APIs to integrate into my development. I shouldn't have bothered! I did not think I would find something flexible enough for my needs on the JED but Plotalot is just awesome!



I messaged the developer who responded quickly and was very helpful. I've looked though the code and it is well very well written. Don't waste any more time, try it now and you'll see how great it is!!!


awesome

I'd give it 5+ stars (if possible) if it had ability to set a trend line. Works with iOS since it isn't flash. Very powerful.

What a good product! Can be simple or complex as you need it. Kudos!


Excellent charting tool!


Posted on 06 November 2013

If you want a great charting tool for Joomla, you can stop looking because this is it.



Many of the charting tools available for Joomla (that I have tested) can do a good job of charting simple tables of numbers and Plotalot is no exception. So, even if your requirements are simple, Plotalot's easy to understand interface will allow you to get started quickly.



However, if you have more sophisticated requirements Plotalot is really the only option there is for Joomla. My charts are all based on MySQL tables. If you can write SQL queries you can access your data and create charts with Plotalot.



By combining sophisticated SQL queries with Plotalot's ability to pass variables there is really no limit to what you can do. You can write a powerful frontend for your charts using HTML, php, Javascript, etc and present your users with any number of options (in dropdown lists, radio buttons, etc) for creating their charts. (I accomplish this by using DirectPHP and turning off the Joomla editor so you can write code directly into any article.) Any options selected by the user can be passed to your SQL query via Plotalot.



Finally, their support is great although I have rarely needed it. I had a simple technical question and received a quick response from the Plotalot team. They pointed me in the right direction and I was able to solve the problem quickly.



I strongly recommend Plotalot for your charting needs. (And the price is right too!)


Great extension

Great extension.

It is easy to use.

I like the fact to be able to call it with some parameters from my php code.


Plotalot makes real good looking charts, graphs and gauges for your website.



It is said that you need some SQL knowledge before using the component - but in lack of other alternatives - and because the component was free, I gave it a chance anyway. I had practically never heard of SQL and mySQL before using this component.



I found that it is perfectly possible to insert data manually in this component. Just look at the examples. With a nice little excel document, I insert my sales data report in sheet 1 and the following sheets "spit out" the proper SQL terms for me to copy and paste into joomla.



Thanks for a great tool!


Unquestionably an excellently-constructed addition to Joomla! Surprizingly simple first use, yet has the functional richness and flexibility to do pretty much anything else you might want to do with the available charts. It comes with the most thorough documentation I have ever seen for a Joomla component.



I have stumped up the small fee for the commercial verion so that I can embed charts directly in my articles. The results look magic!

Simple Responsive Menu is a drop-in replacement for the standard Joomla vertical menu. At wider screen widths, you should see no difference at all from the standard Joomla menu. At narrower screen widths the normal vertical menu is made invisible, and a select list menu is made visible instead. You can configure the screen width where this switch takes place, and the position of the select list menu. The old days of desktop or laptop computers being the prevalent way to access the web have gone, and most sites now need to work equally well on both small and large screens. Vertical menus do not work well on mobile phones! Simple Responsive Menu is a quick and easy way to make your vertical menu responsive.

Eyesite keeps an eye on your website, alerting you by email if any files, anywhere in the directory structure are added, changed, or deleted. Eyesite scans your directory structures, storing the details of every file in a database table. The details stored include the file date/time, size, and md5 checksum of the file. Every time Eyesite re-scans the directory structure, it re-calculates the md5 checksum of each file, and compares it to the one stored in the database. Eyesite is then able to detect any files in the directory tree that are new, changed, or deleted. If any changes are detected, Eyesite sends you an email. With Eyesite, you can scan your site manually from the admin interface, or get the plugin to scan your site automatically at regular intervals. We sleep better at night knowing that Eyesite will tell us if anyone gets into any of our websites - and we'll know exactly which files were tampered with, so we can fix the problem fast. The main status screen of Eyesite tels you which files have been added, changed, or deleted. The History screen shows the history of all past scans and administrative actions.

SPGM (Simple Picture Gallery Manager) is a very old picture gallery written long before Joomla. It is no longer being developed, so we have taken it over and integrated it into Joomla with our own administrative back-end. SPGM is light-weight, fast, and stable. By today's standards it is "old-fashioned" - it doesn't use lightboxes or animation effects, although it does have a Javascript slide-show. It's fast and can be configured in many different styles. It may be old but it still has a place on some sites. Front-end features include: Fully responsive Supports jpg, png, and gif images Gallery/picture captioning including multi-language captioning Infinite sub-galleries Several sort options for both pictures and galleries Random or fixed thumbnails for gallery lists Optional new pictures highlighting Can optionally show Exif data Slideshow mode Optional automatic drop-shadows around thumbnails and pictures Many options for controlling layout and behaviour The back-end features multi-file uploads, resize on upload, automatic thumbnail generation, creation and renaming of galleries, caption editing, front-end configuration, etc. The PDF user guide explains everything in detail.

Payage is a free Joomla Component that manages online payments via multiple payment gateways for multiple Joomla components. It has a well-documented API so is an ideal payment platform for any Joomla component. Payage only deals with payments. It is not a shopping cart or a booking system. On its own it does nothing useful. But when used as an isolation layer between the application and the payment gateways, it makes the application code simpler and cleaner, and makes it relatively straightforward to add new payment gateways. Payage was primarily developed for use by our own components, but it is free and open source so can be used by anyone to simplify the development of a component that requires payment interfaces. Payage currently supports PayPal, Skrill (Moneybookers), PayPlug, Barclaycard ePDQ, Mollie, SagePay, and Offline (manual) payments. More will follow. The developers guide describes how to build Payage applications and how to add new payment gateways.
